Dixie Cup Water Tower
If only somebody could construct a 30ft copy of Highlights magazine nearby, Lexington could play home to the world's largest dentist's office. As it is, this cup sits alone atop the now-defunct Dixie Cup factory, a landmark the city forced Georgia-Pacific to keep when it purchased the building -- it's used as a beacon for incoming air traffic.
The World's Biggest Teacup -- which holds 150,000 gallons of water (or 2.4 million cups of coffee) -- is flanked by the World's Biggest Coffee Pot. It was built as a tribute to Stanton's most famous daughter, Virginia Christine, who starred in Folgers coffee commercials. Why they don't just call it a coffee cup though, is anybody's guess.
