The Great American Photo Thread

Most of the regional sections have a photothread. I thought it would be cool to have one for the entire US, not just urban photography but any high quality photos of the country, its' buildings, people and landscapes. I invite anybody to post good photos and say a few words about the subject or at least say what it is. For the sake of making an interesting thread it is probably best to post five or less photos per post and to not photo bomb it with 80 straight pictures of the same city.

Fort Herkimer Church, Herkimer, New York

This is one of only a handful of surviving colonial era buildings in the Mohawk Valley in upstate New York. It was built in 1767:

I was thinking there is a lot of cool stuff in this country, it would be good to have a thread that showed it all. We shouldn't all just post photos in our own regional forums.
