On the grounds of the Huntsville Depot Museum, we see an old International Harvester truck, circa 1930. From about the same time period, two Fry visible gas pumps. On the building is one of two large mosaics called the Patriot’s Mosaic.
The Patriot’s Mosaic, on display at the Huntsville Depot Museum, is a 15 foot x 15 foot patriotic image made up of 1296 5-inch square photographs of veterans. A series of ten mosaics will be produced with one unveiled each Veteran’s Day through 2022. The Visions of Vets Patriot’s Mosaic honors those who have served our country as a member of the armed forces.
To the west south west, the bright yellow building is the Historic Huntsville Depot Museum.

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
