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?
