As Ripley's Ghost proclaims..."Come in...look around...and see if you Believe It or Not!"
In 1812 an earthquake measuring more than 8.0 on the Richter Scale occurred at New Madrid, Missouri. This earthquake made the Mississippi River run backwards for three days and made Church bells ring In Philadelphia! Our building reflects that odd event, and Ripley's...Believe It or Not!
