Lincoln (AP) -- A central Illinois town's record-holding covered wagon will undergo repairs after being damaged by strong winds last week.
The Guinness Book of World Records has recognized the 40-foot-long, 12-foot-wide, 10,000-pound wagon as the world's largest.
It was hand-built of Illinois oak and steel in 2001 by Pawnee resident David Bentley, and bought in 2007 by the Abraham Lincoln Tourism Bureau of Logan County.
It sits near a hotel in the town of Lincoln and has become quite the tourist attraction, with its 12-foot fiberglass Abraham Lincoln sitting on the wagon seat.
In late January, a wagon wheel was destroyed by 50 mile per hour winds.
Tourism officials hope the repairs can be made quickly.
Evangelist Franklin Graham prayed on a sidewalk outside the Pentagon Thursday after his invitation to a prayer service inside was withdrawn because of comments that insulted people of other religions. More>>
