Share Your Obscure Historical Landmarks, Win James Loewen's Book
I live near Grover Cleveland's birthplace. I've never been, but the people who handle our area's highway signage are very proud of our proximity to presidential history, even if Cleveland left this house (and New Jersey) before he turned five. One of these days, I'll drop by and let you know what there is to learn about our 22nd (and 24th) president.
In the meantime, we have a copy of James Loewen's Lies Across America: What Our Historic Sites Get Wrong to give away, so let's do this: tell us about the historical landmarks in your general vicinity. The most obscure historic site wins the book. We'll also give away a mental_floss t-shirt to another submission we find particularly enjoyable.
We'll announce the winners early next week. I'm looking forward to adding a few more sites to my 'Must Visit (But Probably Won't)' list.
