Hillary Clinton will make history on Friday, but probably not the kind she wanted. Here in this tiny town in remote northwestern Kansas, she will be the first woman inducted into a museum that most Americans have never heard of, except for the people who live here and those eccentric few who travel the back roads of the country in search of extremely odd things.

The phone pictured at the top of this post might look like an iPhone 7, but it’s not. It has the same matte black finish as an iPhone 7, and it also has the same rounded edges, camera bump and antenna lines.
