Huge coal shovel with information on how it was made, used and got to this little park. A fun trip off the highway. Our two grandsons, ages 10 and 11 both enjoyed standing in the shovel and see the bridge and caboose next to it. Free, a little odd and still interesting!

We saw this on Roadsideamerica.com and it was along our journey so we pulled of at the exit, drove through a very small town, turned left after the railroad tracks and there it was ! I stood inside and my wife took a photo. Then we put our motorhome up close to it. We could fit the front inside the shovel....it's that big. Nice side stop on our way north.…

44 ton shovel. Look at a pic, it will save you the bug bites on your legs. The park down the street is a beautiful place. The town is pretty dead. Roads are real tore up, kinda looks like a old ghost town. Not a whole lot here.

Only stop here if you're already exited to stop for gas or a break. It is a really huge old coal bucket shovel that I suspect they didn't want to move so turned it into a monument.

Big Mouth, World's Largest Coal Shovel sits just across the street from city all for Rich Hill, Mo. This Shovel was used to shovel coal. The Shovel by its self weights 44 ton. Nice little stop to stretch your legs and take some pictures. There is also a caboose on the site.
