Description:
Have you ever seen the grand cities of Europe? Rome with her Colosseum, Athens with her Parthenon, London with that big clock? You haven't? Well, neither have I. But if you've ever looked at a map of the rural parts of the US (and I know you have, otherwise you wouldn't be geocaching, would you?), you'll find a London here, a Vienna there, or even the cradle of civilization, Mesopotamia.

Nevada, TX was named for the State of Nevada, back in its territorial days, but thanks to a 1927 tornado, is considerably smaller in terms of population. They also pronounce it "nuh-VAY-duh."

Newark, TX has been a small town with a big name twice: It began life as Odessa, but was ultimately overshadowed by another Odessa in West Texas, taking on the name of Newark, probably as a nod to the hometown of the engineer who surveyed this town.
