Visitor Tips and News About Coffee Pot-Shaped Building
Telegraph Rd, which the map tells you to turn onto...doesn't look like a road. It's one of the Fairgrounds entrances. The pot is right there! A sign explains how it was put up to promote Bert Koontz' gas station, to attract people to it. It was fun to see![Bette, 07/30/2014]
We love the giant coffee pot, and Bedford is a cute town to drive through. Good American history.[lauren hurst, 11/28/2013]
Saw this on a road trip and thought it was cool. If you get there after 10:00 am you can go inside, and they have a gift shop next door.[Courtney, 03/16/2010]
The dilapidated 1925 coffee pot was restored in 2003 and has a new home at the fairgrounds. It's gorgeous.[Debora Drower, 09/08/2006]
