Follow The Yellow Brick Road...



To the wonderful land of................

PEEKSKILL, NY?!?!



According to historian John Curran, the exact yellow bricks which inspired author and playwright L. Frank Baum are located in Peekskill, NY.  

According to Mr. Curran, when 12 year old Baum arrived in Peekskill to attend the Peekskill Military Academy, he asked for directions after getting off a steamboat.  He was told to, "Follow the yellow brick road."

According to old maps, the brick road did in fact, actually at one time lead directly to the military academy.
