The monument features an oversized plump molded aluminum full peanut in its shell on top of a granite base that declares this nutty roadside attraction as the “World’s Largest Peanut.” It is also inscribed to say that is was “dedicated to the Bryan County Peanut Growers and Processors – Nov. 15, 1974.”

You can find the giant nut in front of the town’s city hall, along with a time capsule that is set to be opened in June 2023.

The big peanut is 3-feet long, 18 inches around, and weighs around 50 pounds. Compared to most world’s largest things, it’s actually pretty miniscule. But, compared to the size of a standard peanut, it’s pretty darn big, so we’ll give it that.
