American Colossus Structures
What's a Trippy?
It's a short visual trip to places of architectural or design importance.
Where are we going?
We're going all around the U.S. on a road trip to find the "world's largest" statues. Sources of great civic pride, these so-called modern American Colossus structures provide tourist roadside attractions and outdoor advertising for localities.
What's to see?
Giant turkeys, huge boots, gargantuan concrete strawberries and other bigger-than-life constructions. If there's a source of local pride -- like the Haines Show House (pictured above) in Hellam, PA -- then chances are they're in the form of an American Colossus.
