World’s Largest Amish Horse and Buggy in Mesopotamia, Ohio – Ohio Roadside Attractions

This 32-foot long horse and carriage was designed by Chris McConnell. This roadside attraction is different than most “world’s largest things” out there because this is made from hand-crafted wood, while a lot of the others are made of fiberglass.

According to a sign attached to this tourist attraction, the fully proportional giant wooden horse and buggy is made up of 2,300 board feet of lumber and 30 pounds of screws. The wheel size is 7 feet tall and the horse stands at 29.25 hands tall! Actually, I’m not really sure what a “hand” measurement is, or whose hands they use, or if the Amish have different sized hands then the rest of us, or if maybe they used horse hands, but it was a mighty tall horse!
