The most-photographed roadside symbol in Plains, this peanut was made for a rally in Evanston, Indiana in 1976 by James Kiely, Doyle Kifer, and Loretta Townsend.  After spending years beside the depot, it was later moved to the Davis E-Z Mart on Highway 45.

  2. Nice to know the original of the giant peanut. I have a picture of this with a sleeping dog, perfectly positioned, to take advantage of the shadow cast.
