You can't miss the giant quarter, because it's in the parking lot of a golf course right by the road. About a quarter mile down the road is the The Igloo ice cream shop, shaped like a giant sundae.

Plenty of parking in the golf course lot. Interesting that this was a student college project. Also, it is on the Lincoln Highway (Rt. 30), so they should have made a giant penny!

Giant Quarter

Bedford County Technical Center built an oversized quarter with George Washington's profile (20-ft. diameter and weighs nearly one ton).

The quarter was chosen for the Roadside Giants of the Lincoln Highway project due to Washington's strong connections to Bedford County. Washington stayed at the famous Espy House on Pitt Street, and often drank at the Fraser Tavern, commonly known as the Graystone, during the French and Indian War. This Giant is installed at the entrance of Down River Golf Course, just east of Everett.
