Remnants Of The World’s Largest Earth Moving Machine Are Hiding Right Here In Ohio

Traveling along State Route 78 in southeast Ohio, there’s a massive roadside bucket that looks like something only a giant could use. Miner’s Memorial Park in McConnelsville, Ohio is home to remnants of the largest single-bucket digging machine ever made. The Big Muskie Bucket is a manmade marvel you have to see to believe, telling the story of Ohio’s past coal mining days. Witnessing the size of this 230-ton empty bucket firsthand is worth the trip alone.

This is one roadside attraction that belongs at the top of your bucket list. (Pun intended, of course.)
