World's Second Largest Fork

Springfield, Missouri

MissouriRoadside Attraction

Located in the parking lot of an office complex in Springfield, Missouri is the World’s Second Largest Fork. This 35-foot tall, 11-ton utensil was once the biggest fork in the world. It might have lost the title (with longer, but lighter, ones in Colorado and Oregon), but it will still be one of the biggest forks you’ll ever see.

The giant fork used to reside outside of a restaurant in the city, but relocated to the current position when that location closed. While it may seem out of place to have a giant fork in your business’s parking lot, at the time it was the location of Noble & Associates, a marketing company focused on food that had a full roster of restaurant and manufacturing clients.
