Big Indian Shop and Statue

Big Indian on the Mohawk Trail

Located on (Rt 2) the scenic Mohawk Trail. He was never a Muffler Man, but this Indian is about 20' tall. If you go you will be pleased to see a bear on the other side of the "Big Indian Gift Shop," which has terrific signage and plenty of other really "attractive" creations about the place.
