Idaho Potato Museum – Blackfoot, Idaho

July, 2008
Hit up the Idaho Potato Museum on our way out to Butte, Montana for the National Folk Festival. Spent the night in Blackfoot, and a very nice, very quirky bed and breakfast.

Why stop at the Idaho Potato museum? I can’t think of any reason not to. Old train station, giant potato, Idaho local history. Hard to lose.

The Cider Barrel

Germantown, Maryland is home to this interesting relic of the roadside.  A great example of programmatic architure, the cider barrel was built in 1923,  and sold cider, hence its name and shape.  With a new development behind it, here’s how it looks today.
