I had to google it. Flashing back to my 1977 trip from Austin, Tx to Boston to run in THE Marathon (where Rodgers dropped out due to my relentless pursuit of him). Looks like it's close to the route actually.

I was stunned at first. I thought someone had photographed my home and uploaded it to that site. Almost identical to the palatial palace I live in.

I'm going to have to read up on this museum.

Read up on their big heist and the stolen artwork. I might have seen an episode of 'Mysteries at the Museum' on this but not sure.

I'm not a big art guy but I think I would enjoy seeing the art collection in Isabella's museum.

In the north Oklahoma town of Ponca City (about 20 miles east of I-35) there is the Marland Mansion. He was a oilman who ended marrying his adopted niece a few years after his wife died. I doubt the tour would compare to the Isabella tour but even Chrissy's brother (140 IQ) seemed to enjoy the tour about 20 years ago. That adopted niece went looney after he died and lived in servants quarters on same grounds for years. Tragic story.
