Wabeno, Wisconsin: Larry the Logroller

Large fiberglass role model of the forest. Dressed as a lumberjack, but he holds a log-rolling pole rather than the typical ax. Crushed by a falling tree in January 2013, he was restored good-as-new by June.

Larry the Logroller. Muffler Man - Larry the Logroller

Larry the Logroller looks suspiciously like a Muffler Man holding a logging tool, and is in great condition in a small park in the center of town.

In the same park under a roof is the old steam logging engine used by the G. W. Jones Lumber Company, which is also in good condition. It's interesting that the smokestack of the engine has been extended through the roof so that the engine can be fired up, when desired! It's a very pretty, well-maintained location.

Larry. Muffler Man - Larry the Log Roller

Larry the Log Roller is labeled as 21 ft., 9 in. tall. There is a little amphitheater/stage right next to him for a fun photo op.

Muffler Man - Bunyan "Larry the Logroller"

There is a Muffler Man who almost looks like Paul Bunyan. He is called " Larry the Logroller " and is located at the Wabeno Logging Museum. I found his picture in the Wisconsin Auto Tours Travel Guide. Larry made an appearance in both the 95 and 96 editions.
