The Stamp Bear was created by Macon artist Heatherly Wakefield (formerly Darnell), with the help of her then husband-to-be Eric Wakefield. Painted to look as if the bear had been covered in postage stamps, the Stamp Bear is fittingly located across the street from the U.S. Post Office. Each of the stamps which cover the bear feature local historical figures, cultural icons, arts and community organizations, conceived as though Macon and Bibb County had issued stamps featuring many of its local treasures. While the beauty of the bear is undeniable, it also serves as a fun way for parents to teach their children about the community in which they live and a great way for tourists to learn about the rich history of Macon.
