A large statue of an iron horse; not a destination, but if you happen to drive by it makes for a brief "wow, look an iron horse!" from your 4 year old.

Love this sculpture in the middle of a large corn field. What a fun place to visit. We climbed it and took pictures lol, just because it's sturdy and so out there. Definitely a highlight of the day.

The Iron Horse is a striking sculpture with a fascinating history. It's located on private property, so you'll need permission tp get a close look. A little Athens historical homework is required to really appreciate this.

It's not worth a long trip to see it and in the summer it is hard to locate at times depending on the height of the corn, but if you are headed down Hwy. 15 be sure to look for it.

The Iron Horse is a neat thing, but I actually think the beautiful farm it sits on is more spectacular. The crops are beautiful and until recently, there was an old stone silo standing on the property. The University owns this farm, so I don't...More
