Illinois Roadside Attraction Called One of America’s ‘Most Unusual’ Things
If you like weird stuff, you won't have to go too far to find it.
As in, all you'll need to do is pack up the car and make your way from Rockford, and head to Collinsville, Illinois.
About four hours south of The Forest City, Collinsville is home to just a few notable things.
Yep, you read that correctly. Illinois is home to the World's Largest Catsup Bottle and apparently, everyone in Collinsville loves it. I mean there's even a website devoted to its popularity.
It's also considered one of The Most Unusual Listed Places in America according to Love Exploring.
The world’s largest catsup (or ketchup) bottle doesn’t feature a Heinz label, but is a monument to Brooks Catsup, which was originally produced in Collinsville (and is now made in Canada). The tower was built in 1949 to supply water to the Brooks plant. The tower fell into disrepair but was restored in the 1990s and is now considered a premium example of an American roadside attraction.
I know what you're thinking, is it filled with ketchup? Sorry kids, this giant bottle of catsup is for show only.
Then again, it might be one of the best lowkey selfie spots in America.
Have you seen this monster-sized bottle of ketchup in person? Is it worth the drive from Rockford or anywhere just to see it? Tell us!
