  1. Default "Where in North America is this?" Section VI

    This is the Sixth section of a popular mind puzzle first brought to the membership by member Quebec Gen.

    General Rules of the "Where in North America is this?" Game
    1) Anyone can play -- just follow along and test your mettle about places found in North America.
    2) You'll need to be a registered member of this Forum if you want to contribute your own photographs and/or participate in the discussion for each place.
    3) You will need to have the ownership or usage rights to any photo that you post on this forum, as per the terms & conditions of Federal copyright law. If you post a photo that you do not own the rights to, Forum Management reserves the right to remove it. As a matter of practical use, we would expect that you would be posting only those photos that you or a close family member have taken.
    4) Every photo of a mystery place needs to be unique in some way -- And there should be "visual clues" in the photo to enable us to solve where the mystery location is...

    Let me try another...



    What is this building, and where is it.

    I will say that this is not it's original location, and the things around it would not have been in it's original local.

    Default One of the Japanese Interment Camps Buildings?

    Not sure of the location -- but the it looks like it could have been at one of the Japanese Internment locations in the midwest maybe? Or maybe from Camp Amache in Colorado along US-50?

    Here's another photo of the same location...

    Yep, It was at an Internment camp (not Ameche). It was a Recreation Hall, was restored by donations, and is now where?

    Actually it's in the backyard of the Great Basin Museum in Delta, UT, a little hole-in-the-wall museum that was worth the short stop after that long stretch of 50. From the info from that link, there isn't a "Topaz" museum yet, but you are still right.

    Default Introducing a sample of a new section...

    Jerry Kendrick, who has contributed a number of photographs of murals and marvels over the years, has a private photo collection of "named roadside rocks" around the USA. We'll be adding a new section of Marvels based upon some of his collection. To get things started, consider this one:

    Default Hint #1

    This "rock" is found on one of the Great Lakes.... and the name of this place is the same as a popular resort in the immediate area....
