BABE THE BLUE OX

The Paul Bunyan Center stood on Excelsior Lane in Brainerd, Minnesota from 1953-2003. The park closed due to the high cost of upkeep. Luckily, the items were saved and shipped to a new area on the outskirts of Brainerd called This Old Farm/Paul Bunyan Land. Even the footprints of the Paul Statue were saved in the Kohl's parking lot that now stands at the original site. Special thanks to Electrospark for the wonderful photos from a family's trip to Paul Bunyan Center in 1956.
