Erected in 1959 by the Kenton Businessmen’s Club, this 31 foot tall likeness of Paul Bunyan was created to honor Oregon’s timber industry and the state’s centennial. A placard on the side of the statue explains that Bunyan is facing north to overlook the Expo Center, where the centennial celebration took place….but a quick look from behind him shows what Bunyan is actually looking at. Not that I blame him. A man gets lonely in the woods!
