Little-Known Attractions of Lynchburg Virginia
image I've actually been to Lynchburg, Virginia, but somehow I missed the little-known attractions that it offers, such as the Fletcher Farm Rhino, the ABC Cemetery in which all the graves are in alphabetical order, Mags the headless cat (pictured), and the world's only car that runs on Kool-Aid.

That site was great, and so is yours. I've been a frequent visitor for a long time, and truly enjoy it! Thanks!

The amazing "silo" shown in the picture does exist. It's a water tower near the center of Ypsilanti, MI. First-time visitors often don't believe their eyes.
