Tillamook, Oregon: Cow Bench

Known for its dairy products, Tillamook transformed the bench across from its courthouse into an awkward-looking cow, and embellished it with a painting of the town's giant airship hangar. One of the strangest seats we've ever seen.

Cow Bench

A nice bench on a sunny day to hang out on and watch the traffic in and out of the county courthouse. Tillamook is well know for it's dairy cows, which make Tillamook Cheese and Ice Cream possible. To honor these humble creatures, the folks at Tillamook decided that they should have a bench that resembles a contented dairy cow. She is available for a sitting 24/7.
