Paul Bunyan, 60 years in Bangor and still standing

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - 60 years ago, one of Bangor's most prominent residents arrived.

A burly gentleman.

The strong silent type.

He came with much fanfare and has called the city his home since then.

The name is... Bunyan... Paul Bunyan.

The legendary logger standing tall in downtown Bangor has become synonymous with the city.

Interestingly WABI's cameras were there all those years ago when he made his first appearance...

Recently we spoke with a Bangor historian and the man who designed Paul about the famous statue.
