This enormous covered wagon was purchased by a local businessman and has found a home in a large open area in front of the American Legion hall on Route 66. Great place to stop for a fun vacation photo

This wagon would fit in perfectly in another Illinois small town called Casey. They came to have "The world's Largest" items. I could see this Lincoln being a "World's Largest", too.
