There is a giant Uncle Sam statue in Lake George, which once was featured at the Danbury Fair. Mayor Mark Boughton plans to ask the City Council next month to authorize bringing Uncle Sam back to Danbury and setting him up in a prominent location. The statue is 40 feet tall and considered the largest in the world. Boughton says he's been negotiating with a seller for several months, but did not disclose the estimated price. He plans to set up a Go Fund Me page and a related 501(c)(3) nonprofit to accept contributions toward the cost.
