Giant Santa - Gone
Southern Indiana has more than its share of Christmas-themed attractions. Take this 32-ft. tall Santa Claus statue -- which has nothing to do with the town of Santa Claus, which lies 40 miles east of Haubstadt. He stood at Busler's Truck Strop for over 20 years, perhaps a transplant from another attraction...
Santa may not be here for very much longer. We found him surrounded by No Parking signs and abandoned gas stations, and the Budget Inn behind him seemed to be empty as well. His red suit had faded almost as severely as the much-older World's Oldest Santa Statue back in Santa Claus.
The surrounding rubble, coupled with Santa's piercing blue eyes and flared nostrils, gave him an insane look.
By 2011, the surrounding buildings had been demolished. The Santa may or may not still be there, awaiting transport to a new location.
