Giant Pencil in Wytheville, Virginia

This sharp roadside attraction hangs from the Wytheville Office Supply building in Wytheville, Virginia. It lives on located 146 West Main Street on a quaint street in this small town. It’s certainly hard to miss! The giant number 2 pencil is colored the signature pencil yellow color and has a super fine tip. So, there’s no need to bring the world’s largest sharpener just yet! (I don’t know if a world’s largest pencil sharpener exists, but there is a record for largest pencil sharpener COLLECTION.)

This pencil was my last stop in Virginia on my road trip through Virginia and North Carolina last summer.

And, let me tell you, tis Wytheville attraction definitely wasn’t a pointless stop!

While it may not have been the biggest pencil I’ve ever seen (that honor belongs to the big pencil at the City Museum in St. Louis, Missouri, this one is pretty impressive… and it’s a bit more public.

The big pencil is so big it would certainly last you for scantron after scantron. So there’s no excuse for you to flunk your next pop quiz!
