The Big Red Apple

Field review by the editors.

Cornelia, Georgia

Though not the world's largest, Cornelia is proud of its concrete and steel "Big Red Apple," built in 1925 at the old train depot. It weighs 2 and 1/2 tons and gleams bright red from its pedestal.

Train fans will want to check out a couple of vintage cabooses nearby. The Big Red Apple is the starting point for an annual 5k race.
