Stopped in Cawker City to see this American piece of workmanship. Friendly locals were available to explain the history of the ball.

This little stop was so well maintained and clean. Nobody came outside to offer us twine to add, but since it was 110+degrees outside, I don't blame them at all! I'm glad we stopped.

Easily accessible site in a quaint location. Gas station with well cared for glass pumps is across the street. I wish we had been there in August for the twine a thon when more twine is added to this already ginormous ball of twine.

Traveling I-70 west thru Kansas, you can detour up to US 24 at Salina, then go west on US 24 to Cawker City. The ball resides right on US 24 in the center of a quiet little town and following US 24 west only adds...More
