20-Foot-Tall Wooden Nickel

No real way to get a look at it, but it looks like a big piece of dilapidated barn wall to the right when you're exiting.

Do not follow the map directions to this site. It will lead you down a private road very clearly marked "keep out." You must be traveling on the northbound access road to see it.

Giant nickel.

20-Foot-Tall Wooden Nickel

A 20-foot-tall wooden nickel is just off of Interstate 35E at the Carl's Corner exit. You can get pictures from a distance on the side of the highway, but I believe it is on private property and I wouldn't recommend walking up to it. If you wanted to drive up to the back side of the nickel, it is on Rohwer Road

[Amanda Furr, 02/02/2016]

The nickel was built by legendary roadside artist Bob "Daddy-O" Wade. It stands in the yard of Carl Cornelius, namesake of Carl's Corner.
