This 32 feet tall wooden chainsaw-carved statue commemorates the bi-centennial of Elk Point in 1992 and the history of fur trading posts in the region.

UFO Landing Pad

Built in 1967, the UFO Landing Pad stands for unity. That was the dream in 1967 and it is the dream today. We hope you’ll feel it when you walk through the door; you are very welcome here. Everyone is. After all, St. Paul is “A People Kind of Place.” We are open from May until October annually, and represent over 50 artisans from the St. Paul area. The Landing Pad is a wonderful place to get tourist information as well as a special memento or unique gift. Local pottery, jewelry, paintings, and sculpture will be sure to spark inspiration as you find that perfect spot back home or at the cabin to display your new find!
