Howie the Cow

Outside Kelsey's Steakhouse stands Howie the giant cow. Inside you can see newspaper articles about him being transported across the road when the restaurant moved sites.

If you choose to eat, for desert you can also eat Howie in the form of a chocolate cake shaped like a cow.

The statue started as mascot for Howard and Sons Quality Meats, made a newsworthy move to a new location in 1991, and again in 2014. October 2017: Photo added.
