Paul Bunyan, 1975

Paul Bunyan just got a face lift! The Kenton statue’s new look was revealed this past weekend at Tall Paul Fest. Head down to the corner of N Denver Avenue and N Interstate Avenue to check out Paul’s new paint job and compare the differences with this version of the statue from 1975.
