Obama's Presidential Library

A man in Tucumcari placed a sign atop an outhouse just off of Route 66: "Obama's Presidential Library." Though controversial, locals say the outhouse has become a tourist attraction, with people stopping constantly to take pictures with it.

The sign is as big as the outhouse, ideal for a photo-op regardless of one's political views (or reading habits). Sept. 2014: Photo added.
