If you`re like me and love to see different and fun stuff while on a trip add this one to your list. Big guy welcoming you to Bangor ME lumber jack country going way back to the 1700's. Nicely kept statue right on the corner, stop and get a picture

Paul Bunyan used to be enshrined in a nice little park in Bangor. I have many fond memories of visiting this park in my youth. In the interest of "economic development," the park was replaced by modern development. Paul is now situated in a postage-stamp-sized oasis in front of a brick building. He doesn't look nearly so tall or formidable... More

We were searching for the statue when someone informed us that the statue has been moved from the park to across from The Hollywood Casino. Almost 30 feet tall & worth a look. We admired the statue & Paul Bunyan's history. We took many pictures also. It was worth looking for & finding. If in Bangor, you MUST find this... More

Come on -- is there anything more iconic in Maine than Paul Bunyan? This has been around all my life and has been maintained beautifully.

I work in Bangor and regularly go for walks on my lunch break. The statue might be "just a statue" but I like seeing Paul's smiling face when I walk by on a nice day. If you're in the Bangor area, I would recommend walking/driving by the statue as it is pretty impressive and quite tall! There is now some... More

This is quite literally a statue- there is nothing else there to see. No place to park. But if you're in the area it is certainly worth making a point to drive by it. Yankee Magazine did an "Up Close" piece on it in the September/October 2014 issue. The statue is made of fiberglass, metal, and wood, weighs 3700 pounds... More

It was raining so had to get a side view from the car. In a small park across from the casino . Babe, hi sox was not with him. I guess he picked it up on the way to Minnesota.

It seems kind of odd having one of these on a busy street in Maine! The statue is pretty cool, great detail.
