    Default "Where in North America is this?" Section XIII

    This is the 13th 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...

    There are several visual clues here.

    1) Where can this statue be found?
    2) Who is depicted on the horse?
    3) When was this statue dedicated?

    1) Fort Abraham Lincoln, the Mandan Depot is the home of an art museum for the Native Americans.

    2) Don't really know, but it looks like Teddy Roosevelt.

    3) Unknown. I think sometime in the 1990s, but I could be waaaay off base with that.

    Fort Abraham Lincoln was on our list of places to visit while in Bismarck. Unfortunately, the truck's issues took precedence and the only place we got to, was Fort Mandan. Ft Lincoln isn't that far from Bismarck.

    Default Yep, that's Teddy!

    I hoped this would be easy.... The name of the place is printed on the awnings in the photo. Way to go Donna!

    The "Rough Rider" statue was cast in 1922 at the Roman Bronze Foundry in New York and dedicated July 2, 1924. Here is more information frmo the Mandan Historical Society.

    1. Where is this?
    2. What is the primary claim to fame about this place?
    3. How close is this place to a "famous" baseball location?

    Default Fenelon St railway, Dubuque, IA.

    It sure would be... but ever such a lovely ride, short as it is. Great view from the top.

    Don't know anything about baseball.

    If that's in Dubuque, IA, then the baseball connection would be the Field of Dreams.

    Default Great team work!

    You guys are good....

    The Fenelon Place elevator is described as the world's shortest, steepest scenic railway, 296 feet in length, elevating passengers 189 feet from Fourth Street to Fenelon Place. Where you will see a magnificent view of the historic Dubuque business district, the Mississippi River and three states.

    And as the lady told us... it was built by some Dr or business man who wanted to go home for lunch but didn't want to walk the long way round.

    No idea if that is true.
