Raven statue

Big Raven Statue

Over the years, the town's black raven statue had been torched twice by vandals. Nevermore! The current model is more impervious to morons, standing on a small plaza flanked by an Arkansas and an American flag.

The raven stands guard over the town of Ravenden. It always brings me a smile as I travel. I'd say it's worth a photo op.

No one seems to know if the name Ravenden has anything to do with ravens, but the town decided to build a big one anyway.

Right off the highway, this statue has easy access. FYI there is a pretty neat sundial to the right of the statue, about 20 feet away.

Raven statue base.

The big raven is still sturdy and standing tall! If you're driving through this little town, you can't miss it. Easy to find, parking simple and very accessible. The shrubs have grown up a bit since the original RA photo was taken so it's difficult to get the whole raven and the sign at the base in one shot. Nonetheless, it's a neat sight!
