Mystery Monday (5/31)

Posted on 05/31/2011 by Sam Melden in Mystery Monday

Another week, another mystery! Here is the entry for this week. Read the guidelines below, then comment and be sure to include a link to a corresponding map. Then, this Friday we will reveal this photos location in the comment section of this post!

Here are the guidelines,

  • If you can correctly identify the photo with a link to Google Maps showing where it is, or should be*, you win! Leave a comment here on the blog or on our Facebook Page.
  • Every Friday we will reveal the photo and congratulate the winner! (The first to post the correct answer & link)
  • Each weekly winner will receive a coupon for $50 off their next Aerial Photo purchase, or simple bragging rights! Whichever you prefer. (Make sure to provide adequate contact info.)

(*It is estimated that 40% of photos document places that are no longer standing. So, if you can tell us where the subject of the photo used to be, that will work too.)


Visitor Comments

These buildings look to me like they could be on a military installation....but I would doubt you would be flying around on one. Could it be one that closed and the buildings are being used for tourist purposes or office spaces now? Just a thought.

Hadn't noticed the Basketball court in left corner, so I guess the larger building is a school, and smaller is an annex building or newer admin building maybe.

Sam, I have a great thought.....if a photo doesn't have a clue of some kind already.....i.e. sign, church, gas station, etc., how about you giving us the state at least right up is pretty hard to pin down the where of a place let alone the what of a place in a week. Lot of folks out there don't have that kind of time....maybe a few more fans out there would participate. What do you think? Anyone reading this agree?

Sure thing Linda - Afterall, it is a shorter week, right? :)

This photo is from the great state of Wisconsin!

its a school and a gym ;)

Wow, Thanks Sam.....and who ever came up with School and we are talking!

Another stump!

Linda - I hope you are wrong about being stumped. Wouldnt that be wild? 2 weeks in a row?

My guess is that this is somewhere in/near Cassville, WI. Maybe a demolished school?

I know Sam...not like me to be Stumped this much...but could be I have been putting a lot of time in working on our mystery from last week, still.....doing a lot of reading/research!

Alright everyone.

This photo is located on Denniston St. in Cassville, WI. Here's a link to the Google Street View:

It appears that the main building has been torn down and a new building stands in it's place. However, the other building is still there.

Anyone have any helpful info to what the original building actually was?

Not a whole lot to get on this one. It is the Cassville Elementry School....and listed with the Wisconsin Historical Preservation Society Inventory. Nothing to tell that I find so far. Funds ran out to save lots of structures, so that could explain why this was replaced. The driveway is named School St.

The link for the Architecture and History Inventory card for this is:
