Whitwell TN

Something you'd not expect to find in Whitwell TN is a boxcar used to transport Jews to concentration camps. However, due to a unique project the railroad car ended up being donated to the school. I'd heard about the project some time ago, but on my way to hike in Savage Gulf today, I stopped by the boxcar. There are only a few of these in America.... and it's a pretty chilling sight.

There's one here at the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum. We went with my daughter and in-laws, and my father-in-law had actually seen one in use during WWII. He didn't spend much time there, but he did tell us a little. It's chilling, alright.

Dan...I can't figure out how to get the B & O Railroad Museum into the glossary.
