Sheridan, WY
Giant Buddha
Rock Springs, WY
This Weightlifter statue is installed on the roof of the Body Shop Tan & Tone. [map]

This Buddha statue is located in front of Buddha Bob's Bar. The bar opened in 1955 and is part of the Sands Chinese & American restaurant. I don't know when the statue was installed. I think the figure represents Hotei, a Japanese god, not Buddha. [map]

Lander, WY

This wood-carved statue of Jim Bridger was carved by Jim Dickinson. It was installed in front of Melody Liquor around 2000. The log came from Dubois, WY. By 2018, the liquor store and statue were gone. For more, see this website.

This bust of Abraham Lincoln was built in 1959 by Wyoming's Parks Commission to celebrate Lincoln's 150th birthday. The bronze sculpture was created by Robert Russin. The head is about 13 feet tall. The sculpture was originally installed at Sherman Summit on the Lincoln Highway. It was moved here in 1969 when I-80 was completed. For more, see this website. [map]

This Couple stands in front of Bob's Rock Shop. The wood carved statues have been there since around 2003. The owner of the store purchased the statue of the man in Shoshoni, WY. Shortly after that, he bought the statue of the woman just outside of Kemmerer. For more, see this website. [map]
