Day 129

Bordello Museum

August 2nd, 2010

Any modern-day prospectors using Google Maps to search for "bordellos" would be pretty bummed out when they ended up here.

In other prostitute-related news, I noticed a local inn on my map named "Molly B'Damm". I thought this might be an awesome pun on molybdenum (which I thought might be mined in the area), but it turns out it's actually a reference to Maggie Hall, a true hooker with a heart of gold. (I'm not sure what the origin of her nickname is; perhaps it's molybdenum-related after all.)

    Matt – did you go in? This looks like a hoot!

  2. Gayle Opie says:

    I’d check out that museum. I’m from near Deadwood, SD, so bordellos aren’t exactly a new concept but the museum might be fun.

  3. Gigi says:

    How many more mannequins inside?

  4. deanna valenti meyer says:

    Oh my goodness! That is hilarious!!!! If I were traveling here, I would totally take an adventure inside. Gotta see what it’s all about, right?

    It’s very interesting that Molly’s grave has the wrong age on it. Hmmm…

    the t-shirt in the front right window is humorous….

  6. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    A bordello museum? Only in the west *shakes head side to side* only in the west would you find something like this.

  7. Lori says:

    See… I TOLD you there was a bordello museum in Wallace. And you all just thought I was off my rocker… ;-}

  8. Jeff in Joisy says:

    All right Matt….a word I am fond of molybdenum. I sell pumps for salt water made out of this stuff

  9. Janine says:

    I bet there is a lot to learn here.
