“10 feet of cedar & flagstaff history”
Meet Flagstaff's 10-foot cedar statue of Louie the Lumberjack, the brother of the two 20-foot-plus giants that stand on campus as mascots of Northern Arizona University. It's been 20 years since this smaller brother had seen any repairs, and it showed. When he was taken down two months ago from his location outside Granny's Closet, a famous restaurant on South Milton Street, it was in the nick of time to save the logger from disintegration. These two Muffler Men were originally installed at the Lumberjack Café. When the restaurant became Granny's Closet in 1973, these statues were moved to Northern Arizona University and repainted in the school's colors. The statue that stands just outside NAU's Skydome is known as "Louie". It is believed that this statue is from 1962 and was the first Muffler Man ever produced. It was originally built by Prewitt Fiberglass Animals for someone in Sacramento that never paid for it. The Lumberjack Cafe bought the second Muffler Man a few years later. That one is now installed inside the Skydome. It has a Cowboy style body but a Bunyan style head. The NAU football team is known as The Lumberjacks.
