Giant Dalmatian Fire Hydrant – Weirdness Wednesdays May 15, 2019

I saw this on Only in Your State website (#1) when looking recently for the Killer Bee Statue World’s Largest Killer Bee Statue – Weirdness Wednesdays May 1, 2019. It lost the title of World’s Largest Fire Hydrant several years after gaining the title; it’s now the third largest fire hydrant; see the Beaumont link below for details on the other two larger fire hydrants. The fire hydrant is next to the Fire Museum of Texas (FMOT).
