Bangor’s wood industry was strong and many beautiful homes were crafted. The Paul Bunyan statue reminds us of its rich history.

Huge statue of Paul Bunyan. If you are looking for a statue of Paul Bunyan, this is perfect for you. If you’re looking for a statue of something else, this isn’t it.

It's just a really big statue of Paul Bunyan, situated on the front lawn of the Cross Insurance Center

Not a whole lot to say about this. It's a tall statue of Paul and that's about it. Take 5 mins to take picture and move on with your life. It is pretty tall, but he's missing his big blue ox. That would have been...More

Not much to say. It's a great looking carrciture of the Famous Paul Bunyan. It has been in Bangor for a long time, and is near the new Cross Center and Hollywood casino. Worth the time to stop and see it.

This is really more a big thing by the side of the road that you might notice as you drive into Bangor than a tourist attraction. It's just one of those odd Maine roadside attractions.

It is just that. A big ol' colorful statue over near the casino. It was worth it for a drive by. Too cold to get out of the car to look closer.

Simple but sweet. Easy to find. It was very cold so I can’t say much more. There’s a lot going on in the area.

Kind of fun to look at for a short while. It is in league with the largest lobster in Shediac, NB Canada and the world's largest axe in Nackawic, New Brunswick, Canada. Get out of the car, look at it, take a picture, then check...More

It is a ridiculous character that makes our home town look like a something from an amusement park enjoyed by preschoolers. The sooner it could be sent away to a more fitting place the better.
