Bucking Horse Statue

There's an easy-to-spot statue of a cowboy on a bucking horse on top of a building right in the center of town. Seems a bit odd to see this Louisiana, but then again it's right before you hit the border to Texas so it sort of makes sense.

[Irwin & Victorina, 09/21/2013]

In the early 1900s Logansport was known for its Texas-style gunfights in the streets. The Bucking Horse, which has been a fixture on Main Street since the 1950s, is a symbol of the town's Wild West origins.
