I don't think my city is really "famous" for anything. Warsaw is the Orthopedic capital of the world. It is also the city that the documentary film American Teen (which came out a few months ago in theaters) was filmed in. Warsaw also contains the largest manufacturer of projector screens in the world and one of the largest printing presses in the world.

We also have 92 lakes in my county! So we have the most lakes in the state of Indiana.

I don't know if there are really any famous people from here, though!

Our county seat was where "Lincoln learned the law". He would walk from his home in the next county east and borrow law books from a lawyer.

The other major town is famous for having been captured during the Civil War. The populace surrendered when they looked across the river and spied several large cannons. When they townsfolk saw the cannon seemingly abandoned, they rowed across and discovered the "cannon" were actually stovepipe and wagon wheel constructs.

Memphis is famous for a lot of things- Elvis, Beale Street, Graceland, Sun Studios, Ardent Records, The Lorraine Motel (And the National Civil Rights Museum), The Peabody Hotel (and the Peabody ducks), Rock n' Roll, Memphis Zoo, St. Jude, Shelby Farms, The Pink Palace, BBQ, Rendezvous, Memphis in May Music Fest, The New Daisy Theatre (probably one of my favorite spots on Beale Street!), The Bigfoot Lodge (all true Memphis know about this awesome resturant) Ruby Wilson (LOVE HER!!!!),BBQ Fest, Blues, you name it! Lots of great things to be had here!

I had to google it!

Swansea gained national attention in 1985 when Mark Hoyle, a young hemophiliac who had contracted AIDS through a blood transfusion, was allowed to attend public schools. It was the first time in the U.S. that a student known to have the disease was allowed to enter public schools.[2] The case came to national attention around the same time as that of Ryan White in Indiana, and helped many young HIV-positive children attend schools throughout the country. Hoyle died one year later, and a new elementary school was named in his honor.

My city was the first capital of NY. I live within walking distance of the first Senate house and lots of historical stuff (great for a history buff like me!)

The first town I lived in hosted Woodstock '94!
