Big apple.

World's Largest Apple

The historic building is beautiful, and serves as a ladies' and men's clothing boutique. Strange but at least it's being used and not aged out and empty. The apple is big and red and gorgeous!

The large red apple sits outside the General Phil Sheridan Headquarters mansion. Visit if already in the city.

We always found it odd that old postcards would call attention to the mansion while completely ignoring the big apple sitting in front of it.

My first destination on Roadside America. Anti-climatic, but brought me into Winchester which was really cool and the point of taking a road trip. Worth the detour if you are looking to eat as well.

Okay, so once upon a time this might have been Huge, but it's not worth the detour off I-81 by itself. However, the town of Winchester IS. It's in a nice historical neighborhood near a pedestrian mall (which I haven't visited yet). White House apple plant is nearby.

[Karen, 08/02/2010]

The Apple is from a time when concrete and a popular postcard could hold onto a civic claim. Time for Winchester's four-story tall Apple instead of that pedestrian mall?
