I thought yesterday’s first post was a good candidate to stump everyone, but SWeger identified and provided architectural information about Grenada’s Moore-Powell-Whitaker House for two points with southside preservationist and Belinda2015/Belinda Stewart getting single points. The second post of the day was the Adolph Rose House in Vicksburg, which Belinda2015/Belinda Stewart answered first with extra information for two points while southside preservationist, Kathleen Bond, Carunzel, and Suzassippi all contributed information for one point each. Carroll County/Camp Meeting Tabernacle in North Carrollton was the third place to be named, with Belinda2015/Belinda Stewart doing so for one point and earning the extra point for informing everyone of the Tabernacle’s place in cinema history; Carunzel, southside preservationist, and Suzassippi each received one point. Name This Place 13.4.4 flummoxed everyone for a short time but was identified as the Thompson-Peeler House in Kosciusko by Carunzel; Belinda2015/Belinda Stewart was not able to name the house but knew it is on Wells Street and that the builders were also responsible for the Attala County Courthouse, good enough for one point.
Suzassippi: 16 points
Carunzel: 12 points
Belinda2015/Belinda Stewart: 11 points
southside preservationist: 10 points
SWeger: 2 points
Thomas Rosell: 1 point
thomfred: 1 point
Db: 1 point
James: 1 point
Jennifer Bradley: 1 point
Mattie Abraham: 1 point
ELMalvaney: 1 point
Kathleen Bond: 1 point
If you have not participated in Name This Place XIII so far; well, you will not win this contest. But you can certainly play spoiler, and that is a great reason to play. It is a four-horse race with Suzassippi ahead of the pack, but there are four posts today for a maximum of eight points possible, meaning several others people are within striking distance. Who will become the next Mississippi Preservationist Extraordinaire?
Another question: will I finally stump everyone? It is the goal of every Name This Place Grand Inquisitor to do that and collect four points. It has only happened twice. I almost did it on the final day last year. Will one of these four historic Mississippi landmarks stump everyone?
As always, please read The Rules of the contest and remember to leave your answers in the comment section on Preservation in Mississippi, not on Facebook or Twitter; answers left on those sites are not counted and no points are awarded for them.
