Distinctive Destinations

Here’s a great site for finding interesting historical sites in your area or when you travel.

πŸ‘‰ Distinctive Destinations

This is from the National Trust for Historic Preservation, so it’s authentic and not some kind of sales pitch or ad-driven site.

Here around Austin, they list the Elisabet Ney Museum and O. Henry Museum.

You can also get a nation-wide map of more places to explore. Maps + history + real-world sites? For me, that’s heaven. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

National Building Museum

Okay, this Austin Graff character really has me going on Washington DC now. I’ve always had the National Building Museum in the back of my mind when visiting DC, but now I have to go see it.

The thing is, I always had a slight cognitive dissonance about this museum. Is it a museum about buildings? Or a museum about building things? Or just a museum in a building? Whatever the case, I’m there!

DAR Library

This looks like a great place to visit for some quiet time and to soak tip some pre-industrial America while in DC. Or maybe enjoy some genealogical and historical manuscripts, if that’s your thang. Or just looked around with mouth wide open. 😲🀩

(DAR = Daughters of the American Revolution)
