"The First Northern Loggers" are located on southbound North Monroe Avenue, at its intersection with westbound Cherry Street, on the grounds of Bank Mutual, located at 201 North Monroe Avenue, Green Bay, Wisconsin 54301.

Interesting tidbits about the sculpture:
  • The sculpture was commissioned by First Northern Savings and Loan Association as "a gift . . . to the people of Northeastern Wisconsin" as a "'Thank you' for the business transacted since 1927", when First Northern Savings opened its doors.
  • The sculpture was created by Billings, Montana artist Lyndon Fayne Pomeroy, and "pays special tribute to the fearless French trappers whose adventurous spirit led to the exploration of the unknown wilderness we now know as the Fox River Valley." 
  • First Northern Savings and Loan Association was acquired by Mutual Savings Bank in 2000. The two banks merged in 2003 to become Bank Mutual.
Very nice article, with loads of photos
