Monkey Town, TN, officially known as Dayton, hosts reenactments of the infamous Scopes Monkey Trial, in the original court room. Even then, nearly 100 years ago, the Creationist orator came off as a buffoon.

There's an interesting article about Monkey Town in Smithsonian magazine. It provides some comic relief from the article on 'Darwin's Favorite Fossils' - commemorating the 150th anniversary of O. C. Marsh's Yale Peabody Museum, its iconic dinosaur skeletons & Pulitzer winning dinosaur mural.
