Whispering Giants Grand Tour: Ong-Gwe-Ohn-Weh in Dunkirk, NY

After visiting the Kinzua Viaduct, I pulled up the list of favorites in my GPS. One of the closest was the Whispering Giant in Dunkirk, NY. At less than 100 miles away, stopping for a visit seemed like a no-brainer.

Ong-Gwe-Ohn-Weh was restored by Peter Toth in 2014. He cuts a very handsome image there by the shores of Lake Erie.

My hope for the now missing Williamsport, PA giant is that he will also undergo some restoration. Hopefully he hasn’t been discarded. ::crosses fingers::

No matter how much I tried to squeeze and shuffle my stuff around, he just wouldn’t fit in my Givi box 🙂

Ong-Gwe-Ohn-Weh has its own Facebook page. Scrolling through the timeline, I noticed that someone posted photos of what the interior of the giant looked like during its restoration. A neat behind the scenes look:

    I was BSing with a couple locals while having coffee at Tim Hortons (just down the street) and found out that the head dress was recently added, as the original rotted off.

    They were a couple of curmudgeons who played off of each other, and the conversation almost seemed scripted as the complained about the fact the carving should be indoors to protect it, which then segwayed into “Why isn’t there a carving for Polacks, Chinese, and Beagles?” 🙂
