Dear Kid,

If you happen to find yourself in Everett, PA, and if you happen to drive down US Highway 30 (take the business district part), and if you happen to come to a screeching halt (screeching optional) at the entrance to the Down River Golf Course, you will find yourself at the Giant Quarter.

Giant Quarter in Everett, PA, DearKidLoveMom.comThe Giant Quarter is 20 feet in diameter and weighs about a ton, so don’t bother trying to use it in a vending machine.

It was built by the Bedford County Technical Center and was chosen as part of the Roadside Giants of the Lincoln Highway project. (Turns out Washington hung out in Everett a fair amount so this seemed like a good place for his profile.)

There are other interesting things in the Bedford area. There is a building shaped and painted like an ice cream sundae and a building called “The Coffee Pot” shaped like (wait for it) a coffee pot.

Not sure what’s in the water in the Bedford, PA, area…

Love, Mom
