Amity Indiana, a small town located outside of Franklin Indiana, has two interesting road-side destinations. First, “Big John” one of the world’s largest rocking chairs, as recognized by Guinness Book of World Records, and is located next to a furniture store. “Big John” measures 32 feet tall and was built in 2004. Another attraction is “the grave between the road”. The grave is the resting place of Nancy Kerlin Barnett, a farmer’s wife, who was buried in a cemetery that was re-located in 1934 to make room for a road. It is said that her grandson protected her grave, during the relocation, by staying at her graveside with a shotgun while the county removed the other graves. The gravesite has been renovated several times, with the most recent being in 2016, to provide continued safety measures to drivers.Short-Term and Long-Term Disability
