As Burt, Sarah and Job are running back to the cornfield at the end of the movie, watch when they pass through the town. As they pass by the City Hall building there is a wide panning shot that clearly shows the words "Cassady and Whiting Block" at the top of the building. Whiting Iowa is where they filmed this scene and most of the mainstreet scenes. It is also where the famous yellow base flag pole is.
