Manistee Lion

At Lighthouse Park there is a lion statue commemorating the Manistee Lions Pavilion. It looks to be very similar to the one seen at the Robinson Scenic Gardens outside Mancelona; I wonder if they made it. This park also has a public beach, picnic areas, and a scenic view of the Manistee Lighthouse.

The two lions appear to be identical. They were probably made by a professional statue company.
