Intersection of Main & Washington Streets Fairmount, Indiana
A couple of days ago I decided to make the drive from Bloomington, IN north to Fairmount and Marion, Indiana to walk around the hometown and birthplace of iconic actor James Dean. The drive is about 2 and half hours and took me through Indianapolis. Once north of Indy you are in the flat farmlands that many think of when one thinks of Indiana. I stopped in Fairmount first and The James Dean Gallery. I spent some time there looking through many items, The fence from Rebel Without A Cause is there and many other items, such as many items and photos from James Dean youth, a picture from his high school basketball days is a standout. Here are a selection of my photos.
Cleopatra loves to hangout with visitors at The James Dean Gallery.
