Secrets of the monuments

untitled

I don’t know how much I am going to be working this week. My Grandma’s funeral is Thursday. I’m not sure how much I am going to be online Wednesday through Friday.. I hate that Grandma is gotten, but find great comfort in knowing where she is.. But anyway.

Today we are going to explore some secrets of the monuments.. The first one we are going to look at is the secret room behind Mount Rushmore. This room was actually going to be much larger, but there is a small room right behind Lincoln’s head that holds all kinds of important documents.

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to to breathe free,” are the words of the Statue of Liberty. Most everyone is familiar with those words. But did you know that there is a broken chain surrounding her feet, symbolizing freedom to all.

There is a hidden track at Grand Central Station. FDR grew up in the state of New York and used to take this track all the time. It was hidden from public eye so that he could continue to keep his disability hidden from the world.

 

And you’ve heard of the Golden Gate Bridge, right? It wasn’t supposed to be red. Red was just what they were using for a primer. But they decided they liked the color so mch, they left it red.

Do you have any traveling secrets you would like to share? I would love to hear them.
