Galena, IL always reminds me a bit of a medieval-style town, although the style of architecture isn't like Leavenworth. There's a long, slightly curving mainstreet lined with closely packed buildings. There's a floodgate, which I think is part of the reason it reminds me a bit of some medieval towns; most American towns or cities don't have walls and gates

New Glarus, WI has a lot of fake German (or Swiss, rather) architecture.

Scarsdale I think?

Alot of Tudor type houses can be found in Queens, Nassau and Westchester Counties in New York.

In Queens, a nice area to find some is Forest Hills and nearby areas like Kew Gardens and Rego Park. Especially the Gardens section of Forest Hills.

I've heard New York City has lots of rats, no doubt giving the city a bit of a medieval touch. Although I believe the bubonic plague has been relatively kept in check since those tourists from New Mexico attempted to infect the city.

Lol, your joking but I also think you have a good point.

Regional and foreign travelers are more likely to carry in diseases like the Plague to international cities like New York, LA, Chicago, Miami etc. than a smallish forgotten city like Duluth.

Hawaii had a bubonic plague outbreak in 1899, I read about it in some book or other.
