Ashburn Peanut.

World's Largest Peanut

We are working to restore the peanut [toppled and smashed in the 2018 storm]. I promise. It's currently at a body shop and the local technical school is working with them to get it repaired. We appreciate all the time and talent donated to the restoration; we still need funds to help. There is an Ashburn Peanut GoFundMe page for fans and supporters who would like to help us with the restoration.

Hope to have it back up and improved next summer, weather permitting.

The peanut is gone. It is now only a brick stump. Shards of the yellow sign are still on the ground, but the peanut is nowhere to be seen.

The peanut was toppled by Hurricane Michael on October 10, 2018. City officials said at the time that they would repair the peanut or replace it with a new nut, but their silence since then has been ominous.

Stopped by on 10/20/18 on our way through Georgia. It appears that the recent hurricane has destroyed this cool roadside attraction.
