Paul Anderson Youth Home

Paul Anderson was known as the “World’s Strongest Man.” He is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records, as well as Famous First Facts, for lifting an incredible 6,270 pounds, the greatest weight ever raised by a human being. He was the last American to win the Olympic Gold medal in the Super Heavyweight division, in 1956. Paul’s legacy continues to live at the Christian home that he and his wife established for troubled teens. Purchase souvenirs, including books, weightlifting materials, and a line of Vidalia Onion sauces.
