Interesting architectural design. Great picture as it does actually look like a large peach. Tremendous idea to disguise a water tower as peach; very clever. It was nice to see.

This water tank is worth the drive by, it's visible from I-85 north or southbound or you get on the frontage road and walk right up to it thru Millwood Park. Great photo op !!!

We thought this was the gateway to the peach farm-it is not. Just a unique water tower that’s kind of cool, and peachy!

Unique landmark. Can’t miss it as you travel I-85 through Gaffney. Stop for a selfie or pull off the road for a closer view.

If you're driving down I-85 you can't miss this unless you are looking the other way! Takes a minute to figure out just what it is.

This giant peach was neat. Restaurant at the base ruins the scenery. Definitely something I'll remember seeing.

You can see the Peachoid fairly well if driving on I-85. It's a landmark that has been in Gaffney for a very long time and it's a great place to snap a quick picture. Kids usually love seeing it!

You can't miss this giant peach as you pass by on I-85 or while in Gaffney. It is best viewed from the side with the leaf- otherwise it resembles a butt. But- it is very neat close up, especially at night.

Saw this a few times during our stay in the area. Have to admit it was pretty odd to see it the first time!
