Places I Want to Go

Perforce, I am writing up a lot of the station histories for the Great American Stations web site. Being a lover of the odd and offbeat, the absurd, the silly meme, I am including fun weird facts in the writeups. I’d like to actually see these charming oddities some day. I shall add these as I find them.

High Point, NC

High Point is also home to the “World’s Largest Chest of Drawers,” a building built in 1926 to call attention to the city as “Home Furnishings Capital of the World.” This building has been restored as a four-story beautiful 18th century chest of drawers, which has been the home to the High Point Jaycees.

Gainesville, GA

…Gainesville is also near the Kangaroo Conservation Center, the largest kangaroo collection and preserve outside of Australia. This privately owned facility engages in both captive breeding and public education, and currently has 300 kangaroos of nine species, as well as other Australasian fowl, reptiles, and marsupials.
