Murphysboro IL Unveils Big Muddy Monster Statue

The Big Muddy Monster, a legendary creature known in Southern Illinois, is set to gain more prominence as a new landmark was unveiled in Murphysboro. On Saturday morning, a crowd of dozens gathered at the corner of Routes 13 and 127 to witness the unveiling of an impressive bronze statue depicting the Big Muddy Monster. Standing at an imposing height of 8 feet and 8 inches and weighing nearly 800 pounds, this captivating artwork pays homage to the creature that first captured attention 50 years ago when the Murphysboro Police investigated the initial sighting.

Mayor Will Stephens expressed the city’s anticipation for increased interest in the Big Muddy Monster phenomenon. He drew parallels to other iconic characters associated with specific locations such as Metropolis and Superman or Chester and Popeye, highlighting the marketing opportunities and economic benefits that arise from such connections. Stephens believes that the presence of the statue will not only attract tourists from the local community but also from across the nation.

The statue was created by a Salt Lake City-based company, which meticulously crafted the artwork based on the description provided in the Murphysboro Police Report. By incorporating these details, the company ensured that the statue closely resembled the legendary creature, further enhancing its appeal to visitors.
