It still is Kodak's home although there is not much left to Kodak these days.

Ahh but how about Lee Center? And have you been to the sweet corn festival? Sunday afternoons with the free cooked sweet corn was the best time in my opinion.

Yes I have heard of this city. I'm not sure exactly how though, could be anything really.

Lee Center, Illinois in Lee county. Not Lee Center, New York also in Lee county just not the same Lee county. Confusing huh.

Lee Center, Illinois had a post office, pop machine, a church, and a feed grainery when I was growing up. I have heard the post office has since changed, the pop machine is broken or gone, and there are now storage units for rent.

I forgot kid rumor had it Lee Center, Illinois also had a haunted house.

I would be shocked if someone didn't know of Rochester, NY. Now if you mentioned Rapid City, SD possible maybe. Dupree or Eagle Butte, SD I would doubt anyone would know it unless from SD or have family there. If you have family there PM me we may just be related.
How we pronounce them Do pree and Butte has a long U sound. Not butt.

Never heard of the UT city but I've heard of Olathe, KS. I would also pronounce it "Oh-laith" like a PP.

If we were IRL, I'd give a dollar to anyone who could name a town in AR besides Little Rock (and no Googlin'!) Bonus points for knowing the state I'm referring to is NOT Arizona! LOL
Cedarville AR where I am from. Can I have a cookie instead of a dollar .

I could earn a ton of money naming towns in Arkansas. Pine Bluff, Monticello, Warren, Arkadelphia, Camden.....but my first job out f college was in AR, so I think that's cheating (and I worked all over the southern part of the state, lol).
