Louie is no longer at this location. Unsure where he has been relocated, but not in the immediate area that we could see.

When I went thru Flagstaff he was there right next to Granny's Closet. We had dinner at Granny's too.

Seems to be a replacement of the old wood-carved woodsman. Perhaps this one is fiberglass?

Louie the Lumberjack Statue

Louie is a 10-foot-tall, 990-pound lumberjack statue, made of cedar, that has stood outside one of Flagstaff's oldest restaurants for decades. The wood is cracking and needs a new paint job. So Wally Baird has taken him home and is restoring him, including giving him a new axe. He is due back at the restaurant, Granny's Closet, in August 2009.
