Finding History

One thing we love about living in different places is discovering America’s history. Walking the dogs helps us get up close to the historic markers and really inspect the buildings and pathways.  

Today’s walk took us past the birthplace of Helen Keller.  Ivy Green is not open for tours on Sundays but we were able to walk around the property.

 
We’ve all read about Ivy Green in History class but it is surprisingly exactly what I had pictured.  

We also stumbled upon the first railroad west of the Alleghenies.

 
So, here we are in little ole Tuscumbia, AL. When we tell people where we’re staying they say “where?”. Yep, we said the same thing before we got here.

Get out there and go to some new cities that you’ve never explored. You might be surprised at what you find.
