Giant Horseshoe Crab, Blanchester, OH

19 of 29

Built for the Baltimore
Maritime Museum, the giant horseshoe crab was purchased by the Creation Museum
in Kentucky, then, in 2006, moved to its current location outside the Freedom Worship Baptist Church in Blanchester on State Route 28. Measuring 68 feet by 24 feet, the oversize
sea creature is a favored church mascot: having changed little in 570 million
years, it adds weight to the argument for creationism. —Adam McCulloch
