Connecticut: P.T. Barnum statue, Bethel
The 2017 film “The Greatest Showman” introduced a whole new generation to circus legend and historic huckster P.T. Barnum, who was born in Bethel, Connecticut. Visit his hometown and you’ll see that the real Barnum didn’t look anything like movie star Hugh Jackman, or at least not according to this statue of him waving his top hat in front of the town’s public library. Still, P.T. himself will proudly pose with you for a three-ring selfie.
