Quirky Stuff - Burko the Buffalo

Duluth, MN

On the east side of Interstate 35 as you head towards Duluth, you will see a large statue of "Burko" the buffalo. He has been standing there for decades guarding the entrance to the Buffalo House. Opened in 1972 in what is now referred to as the "Valley of the Buffalo," the Buffalo House has continually grown and expanded over the years. Under the watchful eye of Burko, it now features a restaurant, bar, campground, and even a sports complex.
