World's Largest Oyster
Right in the heart of South Bend, just north of the fish factory, in Robert Bush Park, is this pearl of a find: the World's Largest Oyster. This monster of a mollusk is the centerpiece of the park that is shared with a nice totem pole and a statue honoring the men and women of the oyster and fishing industries of the area.[Phrank Phester, 10/18/2013]
The park, which is really just a small parking lot, also has a statue of its namesake, Robert Bush, firing a pistol while administering plasma to a wounded WWII soldier. According to its plaque, Bush killed six charging Japanese, and had his eye shot out, but refused to leave the wounded man.
