The Big Boy Graveyard: Rediscovered 7 Years Later

Many of you have read my previous post of the old post regarding the “Legend of the Big Boy Graveyard”. Thanks to an incredible amount of search traffic to Yooper Steez due to that post, and an excellent response from readers, I think I have some information you will all be happy to hear!

First off, a big thanks goes out to Katrina who e-mailed me a new top secret location.

I feel that what used to be called the “Big Boy Graveyard” can no longer be dubbed as such. As the previous photos showed there was a third Big Boy lying on the ground with a hamburger along side it. It was more of a dump site.

Now however, it’s not so much a graveyard as it is an entrance to a chained off driveway to the dump site. They have the same role as those ridiculous lions you see at the end of driveways in what are usually gated off houses. However, they don’t quite fend you off as much as the lions. But I think most people would agree there’s still a bit of creepiness to it when seeing this great American icon out of context.

Enjoy the photos…
