Praying Mantis Statue (Gone)
A Praying Mantis statue has stood along Route 30 -- the Lincoln Highway -- since the mid-1960s. Though it's a somewhat minor landmark at 9-ft. tall, it gets points for endurance. In November 2007, bug-averse vandals damaged the statue and dragged it across the street, where owner Georgia Sheftic found it. But this mantis is a tough bug; it has been vandalized and repaired before.
The big insect -- today referred to as "Survivor" by Sheftic -- was sculpted in fiberglass by James Sidwell, who also made a Praying Mantis and assorted creatures for Dinosaur Land in White Post, Virginia. It's been in its current location for over 20 years.
