The Historic 1935 Santa Statue is "dedicated to the children of the world." Standing 22-feet tall and weighing 40-tons, the Santa Statue just underwent a full-restoration, returning the iconic figure of Santa back to his original condition. The public is free to visit the statue during the day or when it is beautifully lit at night.

This statue is a must see. It is located with the old church, the old post office, and the museum. No charge for these attractions but we did choose to make a donation (not required). If you write a letter to Santa in the old...More

This large Santa Claus statue is located right in the middle of everythin. There is a paved trail up to it and it is great for photo ops.

Big statue that stands over 20 feet tall celebrating the spirit of Christmas. You need to walk up a hill to get to it, not a big hill, and it is handicap accessible, but there's still a hill.

Great stop for a bit of history. A short walk up to the statue that's paved. Definitely worth a stop

If you go to the museum, you can see the statue and walk up to it. There is no charge. I didn't walk up to the statue myself, I just snapped a photo from the museum since it was so large.

This is located by the old church, post office and Santa Claus Museum. They are all in one spot and that is very convenient. They could use restroom or porta-potty in this area.
