The Cowboy statue in Wickenburg is located in front of the Gold Nugget Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge. The life-sized sculpture is painted bronze. It was produced by J. Seward Johnson and is entitled "Vaquero with Guitar". There are several other Johnson sculptures in Wickenburg which were based on local history. They were installed in 2008.

This Cowboy sculpture in Pismo Beach stands in front of F. McLintock's Saloon which has been here since the mid-1970s. It is 40 feet tall and was carved from a Monterey cypress tree which used to stand next to the restaurant. The tree died of a bacterial disease and needed to be removed. An artist was called in to carve the statue from the tree. [map]

Liquor Store [gone]
Wichita, KS
The Hansen Linda Liquor Store cowboy was originally installed at a Cowboy Cleaners. There were a dozen Cowboy Cleaners in Wichita by the late 1950s. The interiors featured a Western theme. This statue was about eight feet tall. I don't know if any of the other statues survived but this was the only one still on display. This photo is from 2010. The statue was still there in 2014 but gone by 2015. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Bienville, LA


This Cowboy appears to be a scaled-down simulation of Big Tex in Dallas, TX. The gas station and convenience store next to him was known as Boddie's Store. However, the building was vacant when these photos were taken in 2007. The building burned down and was replaced with another one. The statue still stands and was repainted around 2011. However, by 2014, a big chunk of his arm and face were missing. By 2019, things were even worse. The building still appears to be vacant. Does anyone know more about this statue? For more, see this website. [map]
