I'm going to try to take at least 1 of my gang to the mosque...but couldn't help but notice that the map supplied by the city puts it in the wrong place! The mosque is at the corner of Northwestern and Scott...

The mosque is an interesting place to go. I visited during one of their open houses after 9/11.

Yes, it was interesting...nice to get in and look around a building I walk by every day...the kids were very interested, too...well, the oldest one more than the younger two...
