Big Well Museum

Saves: 5
Check-ins: 1
Completed in 1888 this 109-foot deep well was the original water supply for the town. In 1939 it became a tourist attraction rather than just a nondescript hole in the ground. In 1949 the world's largest pallasite meteorite was placed in the visitors' area above ground. Unfortunately, a huge tornado destroyed the visitors' building but the well and the meteorite remained intact. A big well's main feature, and its most impressive, is the spiral staircase that scales the inner walls and suggests a tornado shape.
