Put Yourself on Our Map!

We especially love talking with the international visitors, those who found our little special corner of the world from across the point or on the other side of the globe.

At last count, we'd had visitors from about 65 or so countries. Within those countries, of course, we've had multiple cities represented for each.

Because it's so much easier to visualize facts on some kind of graph than it is on a just a list, we installed a world map in our lobby and marked all the cities and countries we had so far. (For the U.S., we've only marked the states. Too many cities, of course.) Image may contain 2 people, people smiling, people standing

We look forward to greeting even more visitors to help us fill up our map. And by all means, stop by the Visitors Center and pin YOUR hometown!
