This Abe Lincoln is larger-than-life. Check out the visitors center while you're here. There's a nice little museum inside (free), and the folks that run the information desk are helpful.

Giant Head of Abraham Lincoln

Right off the freeway -- not only the head of Abraham Lincoln, but a really nice rest stop and information center. Lots of free tour magazines and pamphlets. Seeing the head from the freeway does not do it any justice.
