Big Things Small Town

Big things in a small town provided a place to walk around not far off the interstate. As their website proudly proclaims, Casey, Illinois hosts seven Guinness-certified “world’s largest” things:

  1. Wind chime
  2. Golf tee
  3. Knitting needles
  4. Wooden shoes
  5. Pitchfork
  6. Mailbox
  7. Rocking chair

They have nine additional large things that are not big enough to be certified as “largest.”

As fate would have it, our trip took us past the World’s Second Largest Rocking Chair. But my go-to app for offbeat attractions took us to an empty field. But somewhere in Cuba (Missouri) is the World’s Second Largest Rocking Chair.
