No. 6 – This labyrinth was designed as a place for meditation by an ultra-religious German society of the early 19th century. Each member vowed celibacy which ended the community’s existence. When they were gone the labyrinth fell into disrepair. In the mid-20th century, it was reconstructed as a classic labyrinth, with only one true path to the center.
NAME THE STATE!
No. 9 – Tepee or Teepee Fountain is constantly changing. This Curt Teich postcard from 1935 resembles modern photographs, but the new pictures are very different. The changes occur when mineral waters flow into pressured aquifers and then escape through cracks or fissures. These mineral deposits result.
NAME THE STATE!
No. 10 – When the people of Ellis County wanted a new courthouse, they sent for Harry Hurley. He took up lodging, went to work, and fell in love with the innkeeper’s daughter, Mabel Frame. He loved her so, that he carved her likeness into the masonry work above the courthouse doors. But his love went unrequited, and the happy, smiling carvings changed to sad, angry, and evil faces.
NAME THE STATE!
The Answers to Landmark Quiz Part I include the following states:
Remember state names will appear only once in the entire series.
Are the answers for Landmark Quiz Part 1, in the correct order? Just an example: Perry Monument is in Ohio on Lake Erie because it is used as a lighthouse. According to the list above, the answer is Tennessee. Am I wrong or are the answers mixed up for a reason & now we match them to the pictures? I’m confused?!?!? Thanks for all the hard work you put into sending out Postcard History each time. I really appreciate it.
The answers to Landmark Quiz Part 1 are listed only as a checklist of states already used as answers. This was done so participants could avoid duplications. They are in alphabetical order. The correct answers to all questions will be posted at the end of the series.
All the state names I posted in Part I appear on the checklist, so I’m apparently 20% of the way to claiming the certificate!
