After the World’s Fair ended, Big Ole was welcomed to his permanent home in Alexandria, MN. He was placed on a pedestal on the north end of Broadway Street on December 21, 1965. Notice that the text on his shield was changed. Here he greeted visitors and residents for decades. Photo courtesy of Douglas County Historical Society.
