We all grew up with these, right?  I am pretty sure that every household in the 70s, 80s and even 90s had kitchen canisters that were marked "Flour", "Sugar", "Coffee" and "Tea."

Well, if you live in or near Posey County, Indiana, you are probably quite familiar with the Moore family, who decided to use those vintage kitchen canisters as creative inspiration for their family farm's grain bins along Hwy 62.

I personally don't live near Mount Vernon, so I wasn't aware of this Roadside America attraction until this week, when my friend Holly Jackson drove past the bins and photographed them while she was delivering for Grubhub. Holly sees a lot when she drives and makes deliveries. But she had never encountered anything quite like this.

She took an awesome photograph to share on her Facebook page. Look at this!

The grain bins really are featured on the Roadside America website. According to the site, the Moore family first painted the bins like kitchen canisters back in 1985. In 2020, the family rallied together and restored them.

Our partners at Eyewitness News covered and shared the story..

As you heard in the piece, twenty-five relatives from three different generations got together to restore the bins to their kitchen canister glory.

For Roadside America, the canisters are just the kind of "oddball attraction" the site celebrates. In fact, the site says, "Unique destinations in the U.S. and Canada are our special obsession."

If you're planning a road trip and want to see the kitchen canister grain bins and other fun roadside attractions, you're invited to use Roadside America's attraction recommendation and maps to plan your journey. Or, I suppose you could do what Holly does. You can accept a Grubhub delivery assignment and see where the road takes you.
