Great place to stop and stretch. Only a couple minutes off I-65. The owners have recently put up a cool swirling colored mechanism in the center. Enjoy!

That's a Roto-Sphere, a space age rotating neon sign from the 1960s. Few still turn, but this one still works.

Ray was out on the road but Shawn happened to be there. He told us all about the signs and the plans for the site. A very knowledgeable guy! Great place to stretch our legs and take some photos with the signs in the background.
