Bunyon's Statue, also known as Tall Paul, is a 19ft fiber glass muffler man, holding a giant hot dog. The first original Bunyon Statue was made for the Paul Bunyan Cafe in Flagstaff Arizona, a roadside cafe along the Route 66, in 1962 and was holding an axe. In 1965 H. A. Stephens bought one of the Paul Bunyan statues, exchanged the axe with a hot dog and used it to catch the attention of passers by on the Route 66 in Cicero where his Bunyon Cafe was located. The Bunyon Cafe served its customers until it closed down in 2003,and the Stephens family decided to keep their muffler statue on the Route 66 and gave it to the town of Atlanta as a loan exhibit. It can now be visited in central Atlanta, at Arch Street between Race and Vine Streets. The Bunyon's Statue is part of the Historic Route 66 Tour.
