Unique US home with Cold War ambiance — I am going here if I can figure out where it is. Because remember, no matter where you go, that's where you went. (Thanks to chriswjohnson.)

If you like old photos, the Library of Congress' collection can't be beat. They've got something like...a bajillion photos online in a collection called American Memory. They've also got scanned pages from old journals and letters, which can be a really neat read on a rainy workday.

American Memory

Also, the website FromOldBooks.org has a huge collection of scans from...well, old books. Lately, he's been uploading seals of various demons from some old book supposedly by Solomon. :-) Interesting stuff...
