George Washington had his summer home in my hometown. The house is still there and you can visit it. It's a small museum. I used to walk by it nearly everyday on my way to elementary school. ("ho hum, just walking by George Washington's house again"😜)  https://historicsummerseat.com  

During the American Revolution, the town was briefly considered the capital of the US, because the founder wanted it to be the for real capital. It didn't work out 😉

LOL. City in NY state. In the 20's and 30's it had a street where people came from wide and far--for prostitution. Legend says, too, the women helped out the needy w/ their funds. 🙂 Gambling & bootlegging, but local police were  corrupt, ha, so a larger police agency from the state cracked down, closing most of the brothels in the 50's. Pretty funny.
