World's Largest Cedar Bucket

I actually missed seeing this the first time I drove by and had to backtrack to find it. If you are heading west from Oxford, the Bucket is six miles west of the west end of the bypass and its junction with Jackson Ave. It is between the directional signs for the towns of Burgess and Clear Creek.

World's Largest Red 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).
