Kitschiest Roadside Attractions in America

Devil’s Rope Museum, McLean, TX

The “rope” on display here is actually barbed wire—7,000 specimens including rare strips of wire worth as much as $1,800.  Exhibits detail barbed wire’s uses in ranching, security, and battle and include sculptures made of the thorny wires. The museum has fielded over 100,000 visitors since it opened in 1990 in a former bra factory near a strip of long-abandoned Route 66 in the Texas panhandle. —Jessica Adamiak
