Weighing an estimated 3,000 pounds and standing 10-feet tall, this egg serves as a popular detour for travelers searching for Mentone Indiana real estate.
The center of town is also a good place to find small restaurants where the locals welcome visitors with a smile. Downtown Mentone is also home to the Bell Aircraft Museum and an interesting art gallery. Each year, the local community comes together to celebrate the town's heritage at the Egg Festival. Goshert Farms also offers a corn maze and petting zoo for families every fall.
