Norwalk, Wisconsin: Black Squirrel Capital

Norwalk claims to be the "Black Squirrel Capital" of an undefined area, and anchors the claim with a hand-painted sign in its tiny town park.

Railroad St., Norwalk, WI
The sign identifying Norwalk as "Black Squirrel Capital" -- complete with a large drawing of a black squirrel -- is on the south side of Railroad St. at the east edge of town, in a little park along the old railroad bed (now a state trail).
