The rooster has watched over this stretch of Highway 61 for over 40 years in Two Harbors, Minnesota. One day, back in the 1960s, a salesman pulled up to the gift shop towing a trailer full of fiberglass animals. There was a bear, a dinosaur, a horse, and a chicken. The chicken caught the shop owner's eye. "With that, people won't drive by and say, 'Look at the chicken," he says. "They'll drive by and say, 'Hey, look at the CHICKEN.' And it worked."
