"Home of James Dean" Fairmount by IceBear7

Fairmount Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 6 photos

Where cool was born...

James Dean Country is a funny regino in Indiana... no offence, but it's in the middle of nowhere, and everybody seems to be crazy about Jimmy.
There are museums, sights, and a mad festival every September.

Visit him!

You can drive your car to the graveyard, stop at Jimmy's grave and kiss is gravestone (don't forget to put on lipstick, as I did, in the far right top corner) or leave a packet of fags to honour him.

    Nice to see someone showcasing a grave of a famous person! We have a James Dean (this actor) and a Jimmy Dean (once actor, now sells sausages).

    what a slice of Americana, that festival sounds like a lot of fun. Have you seen the trio of JD films? Pretty dated for today, but cool nonetheless. Now you must see the Cholame, California intersection where he ended.
