World’s largest barberpole


Hiawatha barber Larry Chesnut recently visited the world’s largest barbershop pole in Casey, Ill., on a recent trip to visit his daughter. Points of interest of the town included not only the largest barber pole, but also the largest golf club, rocking chair, swizzle spoon, mailbox and pitchfork to name a few. The town also was very proud of its “Big Things,” including an ear of corn, pencil, yard stick, bookworm, baseball bat and much more — all located at points of interest around the town. Chesnut said he, of course, had to get a photo with the largest barbershop pole, located at 12 W. Main in the city.
