Sheboygan, Wisconsin: America's Tallest Flagpole

Ben Salzmann, CEO of the Acuity Insurance Co., has been building giant flagpoles on his company property for years, and they keep falling down. This 400-foot-tall mega-pole was dedicated on June 16, 2014.

2800 S. Taylor Drive, Sheboygan, WI

Plenty of parking, unless your vehicle is over 40 feet long. Not much room to turn around.

From Interstate 43, it deceptively looks like an ordinary flagpole....

There may be taller flagpoles in other countries, but as the electronic sign for this pole points out, it's the "World's Tallest Symbol of Freedom."


America's Tallest Flagpole

Mostly worth it for the drive there. It's so large, it's kind of an optical illusion from certain angles/distances. Nice to see insurance company profits used wisely.
