April 27: Oh, The Places You'll Go!

Choose one (or more) of the historical/environmental/culturally significant sites sites from the list below and do a little research. (Or draw from your knowledge and experience if you have visited.) Find out what you can about the history of the place or monument, including its beginning, any controversies, why it is famous, and what it looks like. Then write a poem either about the landmark or a poem in which the site plays a part somehow.
