Name that Flyover city – September 13, 2019

Let’s see how you did!

First, let’s review the questions:

  1. This city was the birthplace of the first elected African-American governor.
  2. What city is often called the “Smithsonian of the South”?
  3. What city has the nickname “Toilet Paper Capital of the World”?

The answers!

  1. Richmond, VA—Lawrence Douglas Wilder (born January 17, 1931, in Richmond, VA) is an African-American lawyer and politician who served as the 66th Governor of Virginia, from 1990 to 1994.
  2. Raleigh, NC—Raleigh is often called the “Smithsonian of the South” because it allows residents and visitors alike access to at least 40 free museums and historic attractions.
  3. Green Bay, WI—While the city probably prefers its nickname of Title Town, it is also called “Toilet Paper Capital of the World” because Northern Tissue—a precursor of Quilted Northern—invented the first “splinter-free” paper in the plant there. [Editor’s note: SPLINTER FREE?!]
