2. Popeye and Friends Character Trail. The City of Chester has celebrated one of its most famous residents, E.C. Segar (creator of Popeye comic strip), for many years. In 1977, a park by the Mississippi River was dedicated and named after Segar. That same year, a statue of Popeye was placed there. Every year since 2006 (as of 2020), there have been Popeye character statues erected around town at various places. All of those typically have the donors' names on the base, as well as the city leaders of that year. Most of the statues have historical text on them.
