If I had the money I would want to open a cafe/bakery/grocery called Wheatless in Wheat! I wonder if the town is large enough to support such a business?

I Googled the town and find it sad for the former residents. It appears it was once a pleasant and productive community.

The Wheat I know hasn't existed since 1942 when the government took it to build the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the plants associated with it. Wheat is part of Oak Ridge, Tennessee. There are three things in what used to be Wheat: the now-defunct K-25, an overlook of the plant, and an African burial ground. The African Burial ground is interesting.

I think maybe Andrew was having a bit 'o fun with us.

However, there is a nice little place to get a gluten-free lunch in Oak Ridge called Connie's Naturally Gourmet. You can go there after you visit the American Museum of Science and Energy where you can see pictures of Wheat and the people who lived there.

Nuttin' like a lil history.
