World's Largest Eagle's Nest Replica

We visited the LaGrange park and were told that the nest has been moved to Vermillion, Ohio, after refurbishing. It originally came from Vermillion. The Raptor center kept us from being disappointed about the nest. Glad we had the opportunity to redirect the folks from Roadside America.

The location of the nest is at the back corner of the visitor center. The park itself is a little bit off the highway, but it's worth it. Driving through the very small town was a new experience and we enjoyed it.

They've got the world's largest eagle's nest. It is part of a display about raptors -- birds of prey: eagles, hawks, falcons and owls. In addition to the eagle's nest, they've got a bald eagle, red-tailed hawk, 3 different types of owls, vulture and a falcon.
