What’s 22 feet tall and weighs 40 tons?

Historic Santa Statue

The Historic Santa Statue at the Santa Claus Museum!

Step back in time at the Santa Claus Museum as you stroll through original town buildings dating back to 1856. Write a free letter to Santa from the town’s first post office and feel the ageless beauty as you walk into the completely original, 1880 Santa Claus Church. Visit the newly restored Historic Santa Statue, towering at an impressive 22 feet tall, weighing 40 tons, and “dedicated to the children of the world.” It’s a great spot to take those family vacation photos, too.
