Benjamin and Frances Graham took pictures at as many state signs as they could. To date, they do not have all 50 states, but I intend to complete the collection as best I can during my travels retracing their steps.


When the Grahams began their travels in 1965, all three daughters were school age. What originally started as a means for travel and vacation turned into a family affair; the Grahams would center their travels across the United States on visiting their daughter. Within the next few years, the eldest daughter would enlist in the United States Air Force and was stationed in Omaha, Nebraska.


By the 1970s, the Grahams had already traveled thousands of miles. And now, instead of storing the their RV trailer in their shed in the back yard, they found a campsite where the RV trailer was stored when not in use.  The campsite, Jellystone Park was in Falling Waters, West Virginia.
