Picturesque


In 1826, after recently returning from a trip to Italy, Dr. David Long, one of the first medical doctors in the Cleveland area, was so impressed with the beauty of Township No. 6 - Range 13 of Western Reserve, that he persuaded the townspeople to name the new township "Parma," after its counterpart in central Italy.

Is Parma Italy really known as the "Land of Ham and Cheese"?

Did you actually want those birds to land on your head, or could they just not control themselves?
Also, Parma ham is delicious, you don't even know.

There is a Parma near Mount Merapi as well. Indonesians aren't very creative.

It's a complete mystery as to where Lee went in Italy, and whether he DID actually go to Parma... I guess we'll never know...
