Visitor Tips and News About World's Largest Cedar Bucket
Labeled the "World's Largest Red Cedar Bucket," it stands outside the Cedar Bucket Furniture Company, built in 1985 by the owner's son as a promotional gimmick. An arson attack on the reigning World's Largest Red Cedar Bucket, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, in June 2005 reduced that one to charcoal. The Daily Mississippean noted our coverage, and reported that Oxford's is apparently the new king of the buckets. It's 7-ft. tall, 6-ft. wide at the top, and would hold 1,500 gallons or so of water (perhaps a good state of readiness if bucket arsons are common).[Roadsideamerica.com Team, 11/07/2005]
