National Office Visit

I was there 2-3 years ago on business and called and asked about a tour.
The receptionist indicated I could drop by anytime and someone would show
me around. So I did, when it was convenient. I don't remember who it was or
what their primary job was, but someone gave me my own personal tour around
the office. I saw the Boys Life "staging area", a library of BSA pubs and
resources (pretty disappointing if you collect BSA literature or if you've
been to the Seton Library at Philmont), I spoke with the ladies in the
Eagle Scout "department" for a while, and then spent some time talking
to the folks in the international division (I think that was the name).
Some very nice Rockwells, and some very nice sculptures (on the 2nd floor
I think). Since it was my own tour, we stopped and discussed the parts
that I found interesting.
Yes - it's not a museum or a professional tour like the Denver Mint would
give, but I enjoyed it. I guess I didn't know what to expect, so I wasn't
disappointed. This person took the time to show me around and we discussed
If you've got an hour, I say GO. Just cause it's not grandeur doesn't mean
you won't learn something or meet someone new.
Always the optimist,
