Paul Bunyan
Stony Point, NY
Paul Bunyan
Liverpool, NY
This Paul Bunyan statue in Stony Point is located at the Camp Bullowa Boy Scout Camp. This statue was originally located at the amphitheater but kept getting shoved off the cliff by the boys. It now stands safely next to the ranger's house.

This Paul Bunyan statue in Liverpool was previously located in Syracuse, NY. When the statue was there, it held a minivan as part of a billboard advertising for a car dealership. In 2000, the statue was moved to the back lot of Honda City. This Paul Bunyan has the palms of both hands facing up. [map]

Paul Bunyan
Elmsford, NY
2001:
2005:
2010:
This Paul Bunyan statue has been located at this gas station since at least the mid-1960s. The statue's clothes were originally painted the standard colors: a red shirt and blue pants. The statue has been missing his right arm since at least 2001. The statue may have even been installed without it because of the statue's proximity to the sign. This statue wore a gold shirt in 2001 when the station was an Amoco. In 2004, his clothes had been painted BP colors (yellow and green). His eyes were also painted green. A planter was built around his feet. Around 2007, his left arm was knocked off by a truck. It may be reinstalled at some point. However, it was still missing in 2016. [map]

Paul Bunyan
Bethel, NY
This Paul Bunyan statue was previously located at the Safeway Muffler Shop in Schenectady, NY. The statue held a giant muffler at that point. In 1987, it was sold to a Monticello, NY car dealership. After that, it was moved to the Eden Brook Fish Market in Monticello. While there, the statue was painted as a hippie with a tie-dyed shirt and patched pants. He held a fish sign in his hands (photo at left). In 2003, the fish store was demolished and the statue was moved to Yasgur's Farm. For more, see this website. [map]

Paul Bunyan
Lake Luzerne, NY
2002:

2011:
The Paul Bunyan statue was previously used to advertise the Lake Luzerne Campgrounds. I don't know if this is the statue's original location. It was long abandoned, installed on a hill at a campgrounds near the Adirondack Memories gift shop. It has been missing his right arm for many years. In 2002, his head was blown off in a storm and was lying on the ground, next to the road, months later. A friend persuaded me to take the head to protect it from vandalism. The head hung out with me for nearly ten years in my New York City apartment. In 2011, new owners repainted the statue and began inquiring about the location of the head. In 2012, I returned the head. It was then repainted and installed. Around 2015, the statue's shirt was repainted red. The saw was also repainted. For more, see this website. [map]

Paul Bunyan
Aline, OK
This Paul Bunyan statue is located at Bud's Auto Salvage. This axe is original. It was an International Fiberglass stock accessory. [map]

Paul Bunyan
Uniontown, PA
This Paul Bunyan statue is located at Fayette Tire. The store opened in 1962 and I assume they bought this statue around that time. He was painted as a Pittsburgh Steeler in the 1970s and 1980s. The statue got a glossy paint makeover around 2003 (the first two photos are from 2002, the second two are from 2004). In 2004, Fayette Tire closed. By 2006, Import Export Tire Company had moved into the building. The statue was restored again in 2007. The bottom photos are from 2007 and 2010. [map]

Paul Bunyan
Greensburg, PA
2001:
2007:
2012:
This Paul Bunyan statue was originally located at Myers Tire Supply in Pittsburgh, PA. When the statue was moved to Greensburg in 1970, the Westmoreland Tire Co. transformed him into the football player, Jack Lambert #58. The statue's beard was painted over to look like skin. Later, the statue was repainted as other Pittsburgh Steelers, lastly, as #8 Tommy Maddox. In 2007, Lug Nuts moved into the building and restored the statue (two photos above middle). His helmet was removed, his beard was painted black and his skin was given a darker complexion. Since 2008, the statue's head has been missing. It is expected to be reinstalled in 2013. [map]
