Uncle Sam stands outside the Danbury Railway Museum. For a decade in the 1970s, the Uncle Sam statue was a feature of the Great Danbury State Fair, a ten day fair every October for more than a century.
The fair shut down in 1981 and a shopping mall was built on the fairground site. The 38 foot tall Uncle Sam statue was sold to a New York amusement park and bought back and installed here two years ago.
Good that it came back home.
He looks good for his age, Jack!
What a fine looking statue of Uncle Sam. Too bad about the loss of the Fair. Fairs were all about agriculture, and we have lost our agricultural traditions.
Larger than life hey Jack 😊
That is a fine looking Uncle Sam!
