210. "Guess Where Wednesday" & Last Week’s Winner

Home Newsroom 210. "Guess Where Wednesday" & Last Week’s Winner

Two ghosts were recently spotted in Barrington, they were caught on camera and they’re our mystery photo of the week!  This one might require a little deductive reasoning, but I’m confident that the ghost busters and sweet tooths among us will be able to put two and two together.  If you can guess where in Barrington this mystery photo was taken, there’s a great prize for the winner this week.
