Name That Place 3.4

Well, I’ve had one hard one and two too-easy Mississippi places this week. Let’s see if I can stump everyone today, at least for an hour or two. If you’re getting into the contest late, no worries, check out the rules here and jump right into the game.

Theodore took the lead yesterday, after two days of a 4-way tie. But the standings are still close enough that anyone could win. Perhaps I’ll even throw in a bonus-point round later today or even tomorrow, if the whim stikes me just to keep it interesting and make up for my lack of challenging places earlier in the week.

Today’s Standings:

Theodore: 4 points
Carunzel: 3 points
JRGordon: 3 points
doakley: 2 points

94-small

  2. 1860, Bigelow & Larmour

    From HCAP:

    “The original design included a bell tower over the entry that was removed in 1910. The building was restored in 1962-1963 and has been refurbished at other times. Some original pews were preserved in the balcony but little used. Tradition says Frank Lloyd Wright called this one of the finest existing examples of New-Grecian architecture.”

  4. All of this is according to MC’s “news” website (http://www.mc.edu/news/story.php?id=1160):

    *Cost $25,000

    *Frank Lloyd Wright called it “one of the finest pieces of Neo-Grecian architecture [he’d] ever seen in America.”

    “Used by the North (MC site specifically names Grant) during the Civil War. The first floor was a horse stable and upper floor(s) as an Army hospital.

    *Used today as the home of MC’s Department of Christian Studies.

    *Named after on of MC’s early presidents.

    • Not exactly new “news” but I guess it does have some interesting tidbits like the cost. I suppose the “early president” was named “Dr. Provine”?

      • The article only calls him a “professor” – but I’d wager that he was “Dr.” (even if he didn’t have a PhD). He was John William Provine, and taught “natural science” at MC starting in the 1890s.
