Giant washboard.

World's Largest Washboard and Festival

The giant washboard is easily visible outside, and really cool. Take the washboard factory tour when the virus is over!

Loved this! If you can, take a factory tour. We got to watch them make our washboards on the antique equipment.

Clothes lines at the Washboard Festival.

World's Largest Washboard and Festival

During the Washboard Festival, colorful clotheslines of laundry are crisscrossed above the street in lieu of banners and pennants. (Washboards, get it?)

World's Largest Washboard.

World's Largest Washboard

The Columbus Washboard Company, now located in Logan, Ohio, is "home" to the World's Largest Washboard. Logan hosts the Annual Washboard Music, Arts and Crafts Festival held every year for three days (Fri, Sat. and Sun) of Father's Day weekend.

This, so far as I have been able to determine, is the ONLY washboard factory in the western hemisphere, and they ship products worldwide. Free factory tours can be arranged by calling the 800 number, or by asking in the office.
