It's one thing to attract tourists, quite another to attract Martians. Built in 1967 in St. Paul, Alberta to celebrate Canada's centennial, the 130-ton concrete structure boasts a raised platform and a map of Canada… y'know, in case they’re lost. Keep it real, St. Paul. The world will catch up.
In 1950, Francis A. Johnson had a vision. And that vision became the pride of Darwin, MN. Thirty-nine years in the making, The largest ball of twine made by one man in 40 ft. in circumference and weighs 17,400 lbs. Keep it real, Darwin. The world will catch up.
Wanna see the world's largest coin? Ted Szilva did, and in 1965, his dream of a nine-metre (30 ft) replica of a 1951 Canadian nickel found a home in Sudbury, Ontario. Of course, a ginormous nickel doesn’t go as far it used to. Keep it real, Sudbury. The world will catch up.
In 1922, Elis F. Stenman got curious. He’d been constructing a summer home, using newspapers as insulation. Why couldn't he just make the entire house out of paper? Held together with glue and varnish, this monument still stands in Rockport, Massachusetts. Keep it real, Rockport. The world will catch up.
During 1987’s summer solstice, this Stonehenge replica was dedicated to the memory of Jim Reinders' father. With the help of 35 family members, 38 vintage American automobiles were arranged, planted and spray-painted gray on the High Plains of Nebraska. Keep it real, Nebraska. The world will catch up.
On the banks of the Saint John River, in the small town of Nackawic, New Brunswick, lies a symbol of hard work and dedication to chopping stuff. At 18.2 metres (60 feet) tall and 55 tons, this tool is perfectly sized for… Paul Bunyan. Keep it real, Nackawic. The world will catch up.
