Who am I?

Cateogry: History Quiz
Posted by: Editor on Wednesday, April 20, 2016

Who am I?

Submit Answers in Comments (below). Answers will not be revealed until a winner is selected.

You probably read about me in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune last Saturday. So, let’s see if you paid attention. I was established to help folks who were in need of long term care and could not afford it without my help. Several community leaders came together with a mission to have me built. Everyone knows my name today, but your challenge is to say my original name. In other words, “Who am I?”

Your award this week is the book, John Hamilton Gillespie - The Scot Who Saved Sarasota by Jeff LaHurd. The Friend's of the Sarasota County History Center generously provided this prize. Please consider becoming a member of the Friends; they have some exciting programs coming up soon. Visit them here.

If you would like to be a sponsor of our "Where Am I?" quiz, please call us at (941) 951-7727. It only cost $25 per week for us to set up your ad, and then you only have to provide a prize for the winner. What could be easier?

Winner: Karen Wehner, Answer: Sarasota Welfare Home
