Hippie Paul Bunyon

This hippie Paul Bunyon statue sits in a field at 34 Yasgur Road outside Cochecton, New York. Yasgur Farm is named after Max Yasgur, who hosted the famous 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival. Now, every August, hippies come together to commemorate this event with three days of live music at the Yasgur Road Reunion. There’s a sign discouraging trespassing at the site, because if hippies held anything sacred, it was private land ownership and property rights.
