Milford, Nebraska: World's Largest Covered WagonAt one time a gas station, and still resembles a covered wagon, but has lost its giant wheels and cowboy giant.
Visitor Tips and News About World's Largest Covered Wagon
As self-proclaimed roving correspondent for the World's Largest Covered Wagon/Husker Muffler Man, I have the grim task of reporting that the gas station there in Milford, Nebraska (I-80 Milford exit 382) has had yet another nail driven into its coffin: The pumps are gone and filled in with sand, spelling even more neglect for the covered wagon, Honeymoon Cabin, and Muffler Man with the Big Red Hat. It is unclear whether or not the man responsible for the Covered Wagon is still alive and what will become of the Muffler Man.[Kendal Obermeyer, 12/03/1998]
I work in Lincoln NE at a TV station, I had just learned about your site two days before I was sent to shoot a commercial in York. This was the perfect time to see the muffler man in Milford (the one sporting an old Nebraska cowboy hat -- supporting the football team).
The spot where he is has a covered wagon [The World's Largest] for a gas station. Well, the picture you show is not exactly what's there now. The gas station is closed, the pumps are gone, and both the wagon and muffler man look pretty bad.[3dpro, 09/01/1998]
