• Fairmount Historical Museum - Fairmount, Indiana

      Roadtrip Attraction
      Dedicated to the life of local boy made good James Dean, this lovely little museum consists of four or five rooms packed full of this movie icon's clothes, letters, photographs, school reports, motorbikes, toys and other memorabilia donated both by the local community and by his film star friends. There's one other room, dedicated to the town's other famous son, Jim Davis, creator of "Garfield".
