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

We thought we were in for something different. There was no place to park or take photos. Quite disappointing.

We thought this statue was in the middle of a park and it would be a great place to stop and run around and grab a photo. But, it is just in front of a building with nowhere to park in sight. We managed to finagle some parking and got a picture, but there was no real green space to... More

Some people need to lighten up. it's a huge fiberglass antique statue of a lumberjack in great condition that even apple maps found on the first try. My wife couldn't stop laughing at the photos she took with his frozen grin. Glad we stopped by to visit Paul!

Very large statue 31 feet high took pictures and a two minute walk where we stayed too. I did not dislike anything in viewing this statue FYI.

Not quite the "attraction" people are looking for. You can drive by and get a good enough view of it. Was better before they built the new civic center, but now that building is taller than the statue and kinda dwarfs it.
