Everyone loves a pop quiz right?
Wait—before you run away in horror, it's important to know that Friday is National Trivia Day. This makes it a great day to test your knowledge of the area.
Here are 10 questions. Some of them may be easy. Others may require a little bit of research here on Broadneck Patch or elsewhere.
