A Texas-Sized Peanut in Alabama
Located at the first rest stop as you come into Alabama on Hwy 431. The plaque reads:
This symbol is to let you know you are in the Wiregrass area of Alabama, claiming
"Peanut Capital of the World".
The Wiregrass area encompasses Southern Georgia and Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle.
The area is named for the native Wiregrass (Aristida stricta).
