Fourth Clue: English translation of “Sonoma”
Third Clue: 19th president
Second Clue: Josephine
First Clue: London
Following is the primary clue for Mystery Location No. 52:
It began as a coaching inn more than a century ago and has hosted a number of celebrities, including a famous author. But the old hostelry has its share of ghosts, too, and some say a dead man stalks the grounds and occasionally enters the building.
Each day, a new clue will be posted until someone names the location, providing the street address, city and state (or province/country if located outside the US) and an explanation as to how each clue applies to the location. If no one correctly names the location, the contest will end at midnight (Eastern time), Saturday, May 27, 2017. Please note, the contest ends at midnight in the Eastern Time Zone. If you live in a different time zone, please make adjustments so you will know what time it ends where you are.
You may discuss the location with other members by posting your comments using the “reply” option, but please do not attempt to name the location until you are absolutely certain of your answer and able to post the street address, city, state, etc., along with a photo, or link to a photo, of the Location.
For those of you who remember our old Mystery Locations contest, the point system has changed. Now, if you name the location on the first day, i.e., Sunday, before midnight (ET), you will receive 7 points. Thereafter, the points will depend on the number of clues that have been provided when you name the Location as indicated below. If you name the Location after the first clue, you will receive 6 points, etc., as indicated below. However, after the Sixth (last clue) is provided on Saturday, you must name the location before midnight (EST) Saturday night.
Sunday (or before First Clue is provided) - 7 points
First Clue (Monday) - 6 points
Second Clue (Tuesday) - 5 points
Third Clue (Wednesday) - 4 points
Fourth Clue (Thursday) - 3 points
Fifth Clue (Friday) - 2 points
Sixth Clue (Saturday before midnight) - 1 point
If you wish, you may collaborate with another member and if the two of you win, points will be divided between the two of you.
This contest is meant to be fun, so, as before, we ask that you conduct yourself accordingly. To prevent any accusations of favoritism, Joanna has been advised of the name and address of the Location and will not be participating in this week’s contest.
If you have any questions or comments, please use the “reply” option and ask.
