Casey, Illinois – October 2017 – World’s Biggest Little Town

The small town of Casey, Illinois is about 30 miles west of the Indiana border along I-70, in other words in the middle of nowhere.

Given that I-70 is a major east-west interstate thousands of cars travel along the road each day usually only getting off the interstate for gas or lunch. Casey decided that they could attract some people to get off in their town by having a collection of the ‘Worlds Largest’ things.

It must work because we were there just before sundown and of the 10 cars along Main Street we saw license plates from Maine, Kansas, Pennsylvnia, Texas and California.

Strangely they all had biblical saying on them, which only added to the weirdness of it all. God must like things supersized in mid America.

First up – a wind chime (it does chime)
