Friday Mystery Place – vol. 19

The dog sleeps evermore

Last week’s mystery location was a tough nut to crack for folks, but after a bit of guidance and significant persistence one reader did identify it correctly as Gillette Castle in East Haddam, Connecticut.  Of course, America’s castles aren’t of the same vintage or purpose as those from across the rest of the world, but there are some rather interesting examples of architecture gone wild in these edifices.

Today’s mystery location should be a bit easier for folks, as it is a rather clear shot of a monument.
