For this post Nick and I went all the way to Norway
Norway Illinois, that is. On the outskirts of town there's a small monument and cemetery marking the first settlers. There's even a plaque donated by the King of Norway. It's just up the road from the airplane memorial and in the same vicinity as the Lindbergh crash site so you can hit all of them at once. If you have a chance it's well worth the trip to see this.
