Bring Uncle Sam back to Danbury!

Help Mayor Boughton and the City of Danbury bring Uncle Sam back home!

Uncle Sam once stood at the historic Danbury Fair and it is time that he returns to his rightful place in Danbury.

The Uncle Sam statue welcomed all fairgoers during the final decade of the Great Danbury State Fair. This statue is 38ft tall, likely the tallest Uncle Sam statue in the world! It was purchased by the Magic Forest Amusement Park in Lake George, NY in 1981 where it stands tall today. We plan to purchase the statue, restore Uncle Sam, and bring him home!

Your donation will help fund the purchase, transport, and restoration of Uncle Sam!
