Mr. PG was first constructed in 1960 as a symbol of the importance of the forest industry to Prince George. In the 1960's, the Lions Club of Prince George toured a one meter high version of Mr. PG to events across the globe.

He mysteriously disappeared one day only to be found again in Scotland years later. A kilt and sporran were added to his wardrobe and he was modified as a beer tap in a local pub. Nicknamed "Iron Jock," this version of Mr. PG now lives at The Exploration Place.
