Robert Street Red Cross

Charles Schultz, the creator of the cartoon Peanuts, was from St. Paul. For several years in a row, Peanuts characters were purchased and adopted by a variety of groups and businesses. The statues were decorated and then put on display around the city. The practice was eventually discontinued, but you can still find statutes dotting the city.
