Did you leave a penny?:huh

I’ve always wondered where this lake was. And it was not easy to find.
The famous Myers Lake on the Andy Griffith Show, in the introduction scene and 5 or 6 episodes were filmed at Myers Lake. Found it on a ride last week in Frazer Canyon Park. Over the distant hillside is downtown Los Angeles, to the right is Bellair, the most exclusive residential neighborhood of LA. Just a few miles from the Hollywood sign. Beverly Hills is just blocks away…I’d always assumed it was in North Carolina. The lake has since eroded and dried up and is now a concrete retention pond.
This marker can be found at coordinates 38.45998, -75.69360....

Babb's Switch school fire.
The Babbs Switch fire on December 24, 1924 killed thirty-six people in a one-room school house at Babbs Switch, Oklahoma, USA. Whole families died and more than half the dead were children.
The fire broke out during a Christmas Eve party when a lighted candle decorating a Christmas tree came in contact with the cotton trim on a Santa Claus suit. The flames spread quickly over the entire room. Contributing to the deaths were screened over windows and a door that opened inward. It is said by some that this is why public buildings now have doors that open outward instead of inward.
The nationwide publicity over the fire led to stricter fire safety codes for schools and other public buildings.
The fire gave rise to a famous hoax. Thirty six bodies were recovered, but not that of three-year old Mary Edens. In 1957, Grace Reynolds of Barstow, California came forward, claiming to be the long-lost child. She published a book and appeared on the Art Linkletter's House Party television program. A local newspaper editor knew the story to be fraudulent, but withheld the information until 1999 at the request of Mary Edens' father, who believed his wife could not endure losing her child a second time.
