Paul Bunyan & Babe
Eau Claire, WI
These Paul Bunyan & Babe statues were installed in front of the Paul Bunyan Logging Camp Museum in Carson Park in 1983. They were built by FAST Corporation in Sparta, WI. Paul was 10 feet tall. The statue knocked over and damaged by vandals in 2002. He was restored the same year. In 2003, Babe was restored. In 2016, the Bunyan statue was replaced with a larger statue. The Babe statue remains. The new 13 1/2 foot tall Bunyan was created by Kim Nessel with wood covered with polystyrene. The old statue was auctioned off for $2,100 to a man in Menomonie, WI.

Babe the Blue Ox
Lakewood, WI
This Babe statue once stood in front of the Bunyan Corner Pub with a statue of Paul Bunyan. They were there since at least the 1970s. The Paul statue was an example of the 14 foot tall statue produced by International Fiberglass. I have read that the statue wore handmade clothing at some point. Babe is a modified steak house steer. The Pub burned down in 2004 and Paul and Babe were moved in front of the Lakewood Hotel for awhile. By 2007, the Paul statue was sold to a log home business in Rocky Mount, NC. The Babe statue was moved to the Maple Heights Campground where it stands today. For more, this website. [map]
