Muffler Men Ancestral Birthplace

The office and shops of International Fiberglass are long gone, but in this spot hundreds of giant humanoids were manufactured -- Muffler Men, Uniroyal Gals, Big Friends, the Burger Family. No historical marker. Are the area's well-off residents aware that they dwell on Sacred Ground?
