Pequot Lakes, Minnesota: Paul Bunyans Chair

Paul Bunyan's Chair, made of logs by a local furniture company, is large for humans, but perhaps not the Bunyan scale that we would have imagined.

Tower Square, Pequot Lakes, MN
Downtown, at the base of the town's distinctive fishing bobber water tower. On the west side of Hwy 371 just north of Main St.

Paul Bunyan’s Chair

Bobber Park is the home of Paul Bunyan's Chair as well as a fiberglass statue of Babe the Blue Ox. The chair is the real attraction, made from actual logs by a local furniture company. There are no steps or ladder up into it, so visitors are on your own if you want a photo of yourself sitting in the chair.

Honestly, we didn't even realize there was a water-tower bobber here until we'd traveled many miles down the road, but the Chair and Blue Ox definitely caught our eye as we drove through town. I wonder if it's time for Pequot Lakes to consider changing their town's icon?
