Twenty Mule Team
Boron, CA
This animatronic Twenty Mule Team is located inside the 20 Mule Team Museum. There are two different accounts as to its history. It may have been built for a restaurant in Van Nuys, California. However, the museum claims it was built in 1962 for the Borax Company and was installed at their headquarters in Los Angeles. In the early 2000s, when the company moved, this statue wound up at the 20 Mule Team Museum. For more, see this website. [map]

Twenty Mule Team
Oakland, CA
A Twenty Mule Team statue group was produced by International Fiberglass in 1969. It was installed at Park Boulevard Recreation Center, a mining town themed playground. It was a tribute to F.M. Smith, a prominent resident who made his fortune from borax mining. By the 1970s, the playground was in bad shape. The buildings had been destroyed and the mules were damaged by vandals or stolen. The remaining four mules still remain at the renamed F.M. Smith Park. I don't know if the grave marker for "Smokey" is for a real mule or if it was just a decorative piece from the original playground. For more, see this website. [map]

McKinney, TX
This limestone Jackass sculpture was carved in place by Jake Dobscha. It was installed in 2021 in front of the Stix Icehouse. The property is owned by a City Council member who was fined for cutting down trees. This sculpture, entitled "Laughing My Ass Off", was created in response to that. For more, see this website.
