Wytheville, VA Office Supply & The Big Pencil

Wytheville Office Supply & The Big Pencil

From their website:
wythevilleofficesupply.com/

For almost 50 years, visitors have made it a "point" to see Wytheville's Main Street landmark. The late John Campbell Findlay (the original owner of Wytheville Office Supply) had the "Big Pencil" constructed in the early 60's. Made of metal, it is approximately 30 feet long. Over the years it has had a number of facelifts to keep it in pristine condition. Recently, in the Washington Post the syndicated comic strip "Zippy" by Bill Griffith, featured the "Big Pencil".

Wytheville, VA is the county seat of Wythe County and US 11 is the main road through town. This store is right in the middle of town.
