Get Directions
The Agricultural Crash Monument in Norway, Illinois, can be a somewhat freakish site if you don’t know that it’s a roadside attraction. Driving along a gravel farm road in the dark of 9pm and all of a sudden, out your car window, you’ll see a small plane crashed into the ground. Never fear, the crash is neither real nor fresh, but rather the small, two-prop passenger plane stands partially smashed into the ground to serve as a monument to the agricultural crash of the 1980s.

The Agricultural Crash Monument hadn’t changed a lot when I revisited again in 2010. Mainly, the grafitti seems to had been cleared up. The sign still said “Argricultural Crash” though.
