Visitor Tips and News About Giant Mailbox
Born and reared in Newellton. Ben and Virginia Burnside were very close friends of our family. The infamous swindler, Billy Sol Estes, posed (photo in Time mag) sitting in the box, with Ben standing at the base, in the '60s.[Sarah Lyon, 01/18/2015]
The giant mailbox is right off the road and easy to find.[teamReames, 01/06/2015]
Heed the warning of not getting in the mailbox...if you try to pull your car up close to climb on top, you may almost flip it trying to get out. This is what I assume would happen, since we surely didn't try.[ME, 05/01/2012]
My wife, stepdaughter, and I visited the giant mailbox this past weekend, and I must say it is huge. We saw this one on Roadsideamerica.com a while back, and decided to visit it and take some pics on my wife's birthday.[Bobby S, 02/04/2012]
The Burnside family is very friendly. I had the opportunity to meet them while living in St. Joseph, LA. Here I have a picture with Jennifer Burnside in the Giant Mailbox.[Marisol Cabrera, 07/04/2007]
