Positioned prominently along Interstate 75 in Campbell County, Tennessee, two rusting Ferris wheels and a replica Titan rocket continue to draw the attention of drivers passing by.
Situated prominently along Interstate 75 in northern Tennessee, two weathered Ferris wheels and a replica of a Titan rocket continue to capture the gaze of travelers. These structures were originally erected as part of Patriotic Palace, a store specializing in fireworks and souvenirs, located adjacent to a truck stop. Directly across the interstate, another Ferris wheel, known for its luminous nighttime display, served as an advertisement for a nearby fairground.
Established in 2008, Patriotic Palace was a local landmark until it tragically succumbed to a fire on July 6, 2014. In the aftermath of the fire, the site has largely been left deserted, with the remnants of its once iconic attractions standing as solitary witnesses to its past vibrancy.
