"The Big Egg"
Mentone is well-known for the large, 3,000 pound concrete egg on Main Street. It is commonly known as the big egg! The local business owners placed the egg in the mid 1940's and had this phrase painted on the egg: "Mentone, Indiana, the egg basket of the Midwest." Mentone is one of the nation's top egg producers.
