Who was I?

Cateogry: History Quiz
Posted by: Editor on Wednesday, October 5, 2016

Who was I?

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

I was a temporary location in the Laurel Park area back in the 1920s. Your editor has blocked out the sign above my door on the right side of this shot, only to throw you off. Without elaborating too much, your task is to submit what my name was until my permanent location was constructed. Who was 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: Jessica Mira

Answer: Sarasota County Courthouse
