Illinois Curiosities by Richard Moreno – Quirky characters, roadside oddities & other offbeat stuff
Mrs. Q says: Loved this book. Ill Curiosities is an easy read and will have you laughing out loud. Whether your’re born and raised Illinoisan, transplant or passing through this book takes you on a ride to some of the strangest sights of the Prairie State.
Who would have guessed that Berwyn has the World’s largest laundromat. Barrington has one of the most haunted cemetery. Read about the famous “Resurrection Mary.” Also find out about the famous foods that were born right here in Ill. Did you know there is a Historic Auto museum in Roscoe? Such cars as the police car from Andy Griffith Show, 1932 Studebaker used by John Dillinger, Elvis Presley’s 1972 Lincoln and yes, the Batmobile.
Read it. You will enjoy!
