Aitkin, MN
Remer, MN
Sekiu, WA
Buellton, CA
This Eagle in Aitkin was installed in 1991 to honor veterans. It was installed in front of the Aitkin County Courthouse. The statue is a chainsaw wood carving created by Larry Jensen. It is about seven feet tall. This photo is from 2011. In 2012, the statue was restored and installed inside the courthouse. For more, see this website.

The Eagle in Remer is about 10 feet tall not including the base. [map]

The wood carved Eagle statue in Sekiu is located in front of the Olson's Resort restaurant.

The Eagle statue in Buellton is located at Mendenhall's Museum of Gasoline Pumps & Petroliana. These cast iron statues were mass-produced in the 1920s for White Eagle gas stations. They are very rare now.

Eagle [gone]
Hot Springs, AR
This carved Eagle sculpture was located in front of the Hawkins Apartments. It had been there since at least 2007. The sculpture was gone by 2022.

Lafayette, CO
This carved Eagle sculpture is installed in front of the Pioneer Bilingual Elementary School. It was carved from a dead tree at that location sometime between 2012 and 2016. [map]

Whitehall, MT
Wall, SD
This Eagle sculpture in Whitehall was installed on top of the American Legion Fish Pond around 2004. The fish pond was built in 1922. Originally, there was a soldier installed on top. Many years later, the pond was filled in with dirt and flowers by the Women's Club. Since around 1955, the Rotary Club has taken care of the structure and fish are added every summer. [map]

The Eagle in Wall has stood in front of Wall High School since 1992. The eagle is the school's mascot. The statue may have been created by Max Hauk. [map]

Raton, NM
The Eagles in Raton are part of a war memorial in front of the Courthouse. I believe it was built in 1996. [map]

Nanaimo, BC
Twentynine Palms, CA
Park Falls, WI
The Eagle statue in Nanaimo stands in a rest area. It was created in 1990. [photo thanks Mark Comstock] [map]

The Eagle statue in Twentynine Palms stands next to the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie 4092. The concrete statue was created by Howard Pierce in 1985. The statue was restored in 2003. [map]

This Eagle statue in Park Falls is installed in front of the City Hall as a Veteran's Memorial. This statue of "Old Abe" seems to be a replacement of an earlier version. Old Abe was an eagle that was caught near Park Falls by Native Americans. Named after Abraham Lincoln, he became an army mascot during the Civil War. The statue's head is lowered in honor of fallen soldiers. [map]

Jim Falls, WI
Eau Claire, WI
The Eagle in Jim Falls is another tribute to Old Abe. This ten-foot-tall fiberglass statue was installed in 1990. It is located near the Northern States Power Company power station. This statue appears to be from the same mold as the one in Park Falls shown above. I don't know which was produced first. For more, see this website. [map]

The Eagle in Eau Claire is installed on the roof of Memorial High School. The school's teams are named the Old Abes. [map]

Vandalia, IL
Eagle [gone]
Parsons, KS
Waring, TX
The Eagle in Vandalia is one of two identical statues flanking the entrance to the Vandalia Correctional Center. They appear to be J.I. Case Company statues with the "CASE" name removed from the front of the globes. If they were not originally Case statues, then they were built to look like them. [map]

J. I. Case Company, a producer of farm machinery, began using this representation of "Old Abe" in 1865. They mass-produced these statues for use at farm equipment dealers. There are also still several Case neon signs on public display around the country using this eagle logo. A couple of examples can be found in Belle Plaine, IA and Minden, NE. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.

The Eagle in Parsons was a cast-iron J.I. Case statue. It was located at Trotnic Recycling. This photo is from 2011. The statue was still there in 2015 but gone by 2016.

The two Case Eagles in Waring are installed in front of Waring Hall. [map]

Eads, CO
Chadron, NE
This Eagle statue in Eads is part of the city's welcome sign. It has been there since at least 2007. [map]

These Eagle statues in Chadron are located at Chadron State College where the eagle is the school's mascot. The first one is located at the football field. The second statue is located next to the Physical Activities Building. These were probably adapted Case Company statues (see above) or at least modeled after them.
