I am up in the North Country this week and stopped for lunch in this delightful little village called Potsdam (3.5 hours north of Geneva). Here is some nerdy local government trivia straight from Wikipedia:

Potsdam was the seventh town erected by an Act of the Legislature passed February 21, 1806. It is said to have been named thus by the commissioners on the discovery by the surveyors of a bed of reddish sandstone resembling the Potsdam sandstone in the town of that name in Germany.
