Johnny Appleseed.

Doofy Johnny Appleseed Statue

Johnny still stands outside the closed restaurant (which is adjacent to the Quality Inn). He's looking kinda tired of planting apples, and in need of some paint. But he evoked a smile from my 29-year-old daughter, who had been in an elementary school play about Johnny Appleseed about 20 years ago.

As of this post Johnny is still there, the restaurant is still closed, and pushing the button does not generate a voice.
