Caryville Dragon

If you live around Clinton or Lafollette TN, you know about this dragon.
The story is here.

I-75, which this dragon overlooks, came through this area in the early 80s, which would agree with citations on the ‘web about this figure having been constructed in the early 80s.  I’m hopeless when it comes to estimating the height of something, but this dragon is quite a bit taller than the Dollar General store that now occupies the old Monster Fireworks location.  A lady who has lived in the Caryville area for a long time told me that there used to be red lights in the eyes of the dragon.

This dragon has probably stalked through many a child’s nightmares.
