I only recently read Neil Gaiman's amazing novel American Gods. I loved it and I'm very excited for the upcoming Starz adaptation of the book. Today I came across the video below. It's about a place in Wisconsin called The House on the Rock. This tourist destination appears in American Gods at a pretty important point and is described in great detail. The video shows the different rooms that Gaiman mentions in the book… but it also tells the back story on the House and how it may be one of the greatest hoaxes ever perpetrated on the American people.
I think a road trip may be in order.
