“Weighs nearly one ton”
Large metal statue of a George Washington head quarter. Part of the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor's Roadside Giants project, designed and constructed by students. Bedford County Technical Center built an oversized quarter with George Washington's profile (20-ft. diameter and weighs nearly one ton).The quarter was chosen for the Roadside Giants of the Lincoln Highway project due to Washington's strong connections to Bedford County. Washington stayed at the famous Espy House on Pitt Street, and often drank at the Fraser Tavern, commonly known as the Graystone, during the French and Indian War. This Giant is installed at the entrance of Down River Golf Course, just east of Everett. Directions: On the south side of US Hwy 30 Business, just east of Everett at the entrance to the Down River Golf Course.
Pretty cool roadside attraction, worth a quick stop. There is no where to picnic or play, so it really it a quick stop. Apparently there are five giant...somethings...along Lincoln Highway, but we only saw this one.
Fast photo op and a quick leg stretch
Nice photo op. also f you put a "giant" anything up, its automatically a tourist stop.. c'mon
This was the last stop of our evening, and we got there as the sun was beginning to set. I think that created a nice background for photos. It's quarky, only takes a few minutes, but worth a stop if passing through. It's probably one of those things once you've done it, you won't return.
With a stop and quick photo!
This was in front of a golf course and we got some eye rolls from the locals. But it was a cute roadside stop for a quick photo!
Great photo op! Fun 2 min stop!
pretty fun photo op! its solid, so don't worry about climbing on it! Its the perfect size for small group photo. My personal favorite was of someone picking his nose lol
It's pretty easy to find... cool to see.. located next to a golf course.. July 22-23
Cool thing to check out if your close.
