(Formerly) Worlds Largest Rotating Globe, Wellesley, MA

Babson College in Wellesley, MA boasted, but has since, relinquished its title of WORLD'S LARGEST ROTATING GLOBE. It was built in 1955 and is 28 feet wide and weighs 25 tons. It is on the front lawn of the Coleman Map Building. Unfortunately, it was not rotating at the time of my visit. Apparently it went through a 9 year renovation when in 1984 all of the tiles fell off that represented the continents. I think the Mayans predicted this also.
