Lindbergh Apartment, Madison, Wisconsin
Charles Lindbergh lived in the basement apartment of this house during his second year at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. In the second semester of that year, Lindbergh's grades were so bad, his advisor suggested he drop out of school before he flunked out. Lindbergh left UW to attend flying school. The rest is history.
