Here at Atlas Obscura, it’s our belief that hidden wonders aren’t just found in big cities. Noteworthy histories, legends, and life are equally abundant in America’s small towns, with surprises lurking around every corner.

As the definitive guide to the world’s hidden wonders, Atlas Obscura is dedicated to telling these stories. In our new series, Small Town, Big Story, made in conjunction with Brand USA, Atlas Obscura cofounder Dylan Thuras travels to three of these amazing places around the country, and has a little fun along the way.
