Name This Place 5.5–Finis

It’s been an exciting week on MissPres, as readers wait with baited breath to see what picture will pop up for identification. Belinda took the lead on the first day and has managed to hold on, but just by one point. In second place, we have a three-way tie, all waiting to jump in front with a two-pointer. If one of the second-place holders gets two points today, Belinda could still tie for first with some extra information about the place. If Belinda gets both points, then she’ll be the winner.

This is how everyone stands after four days and two bonus rounds (did you miss today’s bonus round? you never know when they’ll jump out at you):

Belinda: 5 points
W. White: 4 points
Theodore: 4 points
J.R. Gordon: 4 points
Tom Barnes: 1 point
Susan Allen: 1 point
Levi Weeks: 1 point

Who will win the coveted title? Depends on who can name this place.
