Casey, Illinois is a small town known for its big things. The town is home to over thirty roadside attractions, including twelve record holding world’s largest things! And while the big pencil in Casey, Illinois might not be the world’s largest (you can find the world’s largest pencil at the City Museum in St. Louis, Missouri), it is quite a bit larger than your standard number 2. Be sure to pencil this one into your schedule when you’re touring the town!
At 32.5 feet long, this is one sharp roadside attraction! In fact, it is so sharp the town put a plastic cone around the tip to prevent tourists from getting hurt!
Like all Casey attractions, this big pencil is inscribed with a bible verse, this one from Proverbs 3:3, “Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.”
This local roadside attraction is located right next to the world’s largest barbershop pole and in front of Casey Coffee Company. Want more? Find everything to see in Casey, Illinois’s Big Things in a Small Town.
