Cowboy [gone]
Osakis, MN
Brainerd, MN
This Cowboy statue in Osakis was installed in front of Osakis Meats & Deli when these photos were taken in 2011. By 2015, the building housed Lakeside Meats and the statue was gone.

This Cowboy statue in Brainerd is located at Paul Bunyan Land. There's another one of these statues at Wall Drug in Wall, SD.


Kalispell [gone?]

Rocket Bob
Grand Island, NE
The Rocket Bob wood-carved sculpture is 10 feet tall. It was installed at Executive Air at the Trego-Dungan Airport in 1989. The business owner had him created in California as "Jose" with the "Fastest Hose in the West." Executive Air's underground tanks can fuel four jets at the same time in less than 15 minutes. He rides a Learjet. The statue was restored in 2015. In 2022, when these photos were taken, it was being restored again. For more, see this website.

Albuquerque, NM


This Cowboy sculpture is located at Aesop's Gables Cabinets & More. It is about 15 feet tall. The Cowboy has been there since at least 2001. It was restored in 2014. Does anyone know more about this sculpture? For more, see this website. [map]

Cowboy and Longhorn
Bellville, OH
These Cowboy and Longhorn statues are located at the Buckeye Express Diner. The restaurant opened around 2009. The cowboy appears to represent John Wayne like the one shown below.

Amarillo, TX
Cowboy & Horse [gone]
Duncan, OK
This Cowboy statue in Amarillo also appears to represent John Wayne. I believe these fiberglass statues are modern and are still being produced. This one is located at the Big Texan RV Ranch.

The Cowboy & Horse in Duncan stood in front of Stockman's Tack & Supply when this photo was taken in 2011. The store moved and brought the statues with them. However, as of 2016, they were not on display.

Cowboy [gone]
Checotah, OK


This Cowboy statue was originally located at a Western store in Tulsa. In 1970, J.C. Camp bought the statue and moved it to downtown Checotah. It was installed in front of his Western store until the late 1980s. Then, it was moved near the railroad tracks. The statue was repainted sometime after 2013. By 2023, the statue was gone.

Big Jim
Bentleyville, PA
Big Jim is a 20-foot-tall steel statue of a cowboy. He was created in 1978 by James Krutz who installed him in front of his welding shop in Charleroi, PA. In 2007, the building's new owners wanted him removed. The artist's family decided to donate him to Charleroi. Ultimately, he was moved to nearby Bentleyville where he is on display in front of a Best Western hotel. [map]
