This 31-foot-tall statue of legendary lumberjack Paul Bunyan was introduced to North Portland in 1959 to celebrate Oregon’s centennial (and was recently added to the National Register of Historic Places!). Though Bunyan’s roots are in Minnesota, his reflection of the timber industry is especially resonant for Oregonians – not to mention his hipster-chic beard, boots and checkered flannel.
