This week the Paul Bunyan statue that stands in in the north Portland neighborhood of Kenton was named to the National Registry of Historic Places.
"The National Register doesn't recognize beautiful things," said Ian Johnson, historian at the State Historic Preservation Office. "It recognizes historically important things. That's a big distinction."
I saw this story on the front page of the paper the other day, but for whatever reason I allowed it to slide of to the side. I think we may have to go visit the big guy this weekend.
