Cateogry: History Quiz
Posted by: Editor on Wednesday, February 10, 2016

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

I know it is depressing to see me being torn down, but I was a very popular spot in my day. I think I have been replaced with a condo now; isn’t everything? Anyhow, your task today is to name me – in other words, “Who was I?”
