Chester, Illinois celebrates all things Popeye. It’s Elzie Crisler Segar, the cartoon creator’s, home town. In fact, many of the characters were based on residents. In Gazebo Park (where the Wimpy statue lives) their dedication to the sailor man and his friends shows in this lovely mural of the cast of characters on the side of a building.
