“it'll make a lot of tea!”

“The Chester Teapot was constructed by William "Babe" Devon. The Teapot started its life as a gigantic wooden hogshead barrel for a Hire's Root Beer advertising campaign. Devon purchased the barrel in Pennsylvania and had it shipped to Chester where it was set up on Carolina Avenue, which is also State Route 2. A spout and handle were added at this time and the wooden barrel was covered with tin to form the teapot's shape. A large glass ball was placed on top to make the knob of the "lid". The Teapot stood in front of Devon's pottery outlet store. Local teenagers were hired to run a concession and souvenir stand which was set up inside the Teapot.”

It is right by the exit but somehow easy to miss, it's across the street from a gas station but there is no parking at the teapot and almost no parking at the gas station.

Very disappointing! As everyone has said the teapot was incredibly difficult to locate and there is no parking and re teapot looked like a cheap last minute creation. For an area that is about pottery I would of hoped for a large ceramic pot.

A little hard to find. Turn right off the highway exit. It'll be on the right, there's a Sunoco station on the left.

It's not too terribly hard to find. Just type Old U.S. Highway 30 and W. Carolina Ave, Chester, WV into your GPS and it should lead you right to it. It's at the end of the U.S. 30 offramp.
