Local Attractions

There is a recycling bin on Main St. However, Main St. is closed down; try out one of the other 13 streets instead. While on the south side, check out the cave house; it's on the corner. Also see the baseball field, which is overgrown with scenic grass. If you need a bathroom, there is a public restroom in the center of town at the T.

There is a used car dealership/parts store/graveyard located on the southwest edge of town, known as Cars-R-Us.

Almost everything else has closed down: the grocery store, the gas station, the high school, etc.

Not everything is closed in this town, however. There is a wonderful store called ESKABA [http://www.eskaba.com] that sells all sorts of neat stuff. The owner and her mother are the sweetest ladies in town.

Outside of town there feebly stands what is left of a historic glue factory. Today you can have the privilege of driving directly past the facade on the only freeway in the area. The building can be seen rotting only when looking past the sign that has been hanging on the fence for the past century asking the public: "Please do not leave your dead horses in the driveway."
