World’s Largest Porch Swing in Hebron, Nebraska

I don’t know about you, but when I heard about the world’s largest porch swing in Hebron, Nebraska, I was kind of imagining an over-the top Edith-Ann like wonderment growing tall into the sky. Something to the likes of this:

What I imagined the World’s Largest Porch Swing in Hebron, Nebraska looked like.

I guess I was, therefore, a little bit disappointed when instead of that tall majestic beast I got this:

World’s Largest Porch Swing in Hebron, Nebraska

This is the world’s largest porch swing. Or, at least, it’s the world longest porch swing. Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s still a majestic roadside feat. It just wasn’t exactly what I was picturing.

Besides, what this Nebraska roadside attraction lacks in height it certainly makes up for in width. At 32 feet long, it could fit up to 18 adults or 24 children in a row. (And probably a couple thousand Flopsys…)

The large swing is made of wood and a red orange painted metal and is suspended from a giant crop irrigator pole.

When I visited in 2008 the giant swing lives porch free at Roosevelt Park in the midwestern town.

Around 2016 (long after I visited and took these photos) the town built a gazebo enclosure over the roadside attraction, and re-dubbed it the World’s Largest Covered Porch Swing. (Finally giving it an actual porch-like structure to at leave give off the illusion that this porch swing is on a porch even if there is still no gigantic house attached to it.)

On June 1, 2016 Governor Pete Ricketts signed a proclamation at the State Capitol declaring Hebron, Nebraska as “Nebraska’s Porch Swing Capital.”

This roadside attraction is a definite must-see stop on your next road trip through Nebraska — be sure to SWING BY on the way to Carhenge.
