We moved here in 1969. My first memory of Grants Pass is our Caveman!! The Caveman club and Grants Pass High school hold this statue in their hearts. He is our Icon.

This caveman statue is in a small park close to the freeway. There is ample parking nearby. It's just a fun place to get your picture taken.

He is located fittingly at the Grants Pass Information Center. Great photo opportunity. My husband and I accidentally found him by driving around on one of the many one way streets there.

I am impressed with the size and structure of this statue alone! The city needs to move him to a more visible site! Like at the Park! Hiding behind a tree and bear statues is not a good place for this wonderful piece of historical...More
