In a barn in a city,
where a singer left something
there you will find us.
None of us are named Desire,
and we're always being pulled about.
And if you want to ride us
on some lines you got to get out and push us.
But, we're still the United States' only mobile National Monuments.

What are we?


Hint

In New Orleans, a close kin runs on Desire Street.

What Next?

I knew that the answer had to be cable cars but I did not know that they are national monuments. Great job!!

One of your clues is incorrect and it threw me off. The USS Constitution, in Boston, MA is also a National Monument and it is very much mobile.

Yes Kiroho, the USS Constitution, in Boston, MA is also a National Monument and it was very much mobile, she is a fine ship and is undergoing restoration, and is still commission vessel I believe, but she doesn't sail away chasing the sunsets. That would be a grand sight see her under full sail out to sea again. But I have no record of her being declared a National Mobile Monument. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Your fine feedback is appreciated.

And thanks to all who stop by to share their comments. OCH

Having just returned from San Francisco, I knew this from the title.

Great teaser! I guessed a street car, so I was way off!

I especially liked the bit of history you put into the explanation, that made the teaser educational as well as fun to do!
