Telegraph Rd, which the map tells you to turn onto...doesn't look like a road. It's one of the Fairgrounds entrances. The pot is right there! A sign explains how it was put up to promote Bert Koontz' gas station, to attract people to it. It was fun to see!

We love the giant coffee pot, and Bedford is a cute town to drive through. Good American history.

Saw this on a road trip and thought it was cool. If you get there after 10:00 am you can go inside, and they have a gift shop next door.

The dilapidated 1925 coffee pot was restored in 2003 and has a new home at the fairgrounds. It's gorgeous.
