World’s Largest Elk Antler Arch
It really is quite a sight. The archway is impressive on its own, it spans across Main Street in downtown Afton, Wyoming. But it’s actually what it is made of that makes it so unique and unusual. This is the World’s Largest Elk Antler Arch.
More than 3,000 antlers of the mighty “Wapiti” were used to construct the World’s Largest Elk Antler Arch in 1958. And the arch is one of the hottest Star Valley tourist attractions, and photo oportunities, to this day.
And one might wonder just how much the World’s Largest Elk Antler Arch is worth. What is the actual value of this truly natural, yet man-made, archway? Well, since its construction in 1958, the good folks at the arch have been quick to point out the value of the elk antler in Asia. The horns are considered an aphrodesiac in parts of the Orient, and sold at a very high price as such. The contents of the World’s Largest Elk Antler Arch would bring $300,000.
