Who am I?

Cateogry: History Quiz
Posted by: Editor on Wednesday, June 1, 2016

Who am I?

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

I hope you don’t think I’m asking you to name the prominent hotel and real estate business next door; that is way too easy. However, your task is to name the street in front of us. Now don’t say U.S. 41, or even Broadway, because that is not what I’m looking for. Instead, what was the street’s original name? 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: Diana Paver
Answer: Banana Avenue
