Get Directions
Chester, Illinois celebrates all things Popeye the Sailor Man. It’s Elzie Crisler Segar, the cartoon creator’s, home town so it only makes sense that the entire town serves as a shrine to his work. In fact, many of the characters were based on residents. In Gazebo Park, next to Spinach Can Collectibles, (where the Wimpy statue lives) their dedication to the sailor man and his friends shows in this lovely mural of the cast of characters on the side of a building. Everyone is there! From Wimpy to Brutus to Olive Oyl and Swee’Pea to Popeye himself.
