Our attractions database contains 15 large rocking chairs battling for drive-by attention, with several claiming "World's Largest" status of one type or another. Franklin's offers the one-two punch of a Big John AND a chest of drawers. Add a giant end table with a lamp and send the other rockers home in shame!
Big John really is big! This is probably one of the largest roadside attractions I've encountered. The big chest used as an entrance to the furniture store is an added plus! Picnic tables flank the chair, acknowledging its special significance.[Kait, 06/10/2012]
