Created by artist Wayland Dobbs in Cherokee, the spur was erected in 2016. It weighs about 10,000 pounds and is comprised of steel, copper, and iron. The spur stands at 35-feet high, 20-feet wide, and was placed on a concrete slab weighing 40,000 pounds. The rowel is at the top of the spurs and is outlined with neon lights at night.
The Guinness Book of World Records has verified that the spur is the largest in the world. The official paperwork marking the achievement is held in the office where the spur is located.
Know Before You Go
The spur is visible from the road as you drive past. There is a large parking lot (for a cafe and dog grooming) that is easy to pull into. You can park your car easily and get out to take photos.
