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.
We’ll get to this week’s prize in a minute. But first, let’s talk about last week’s winner. Just moments ago my babysitter drew the winning name and it is…
Thanks for your guess and congratulations, Tracy. I’ll be emailing you this afternoon with details about how to receive your two free tickets to tomorrow night’s Barrington Taste Fest and EXPO at Millrose Restaurant. It’s going to be a great event with dozens of dishes to sample from restaurants all over Barrington.

It is, indeed, a picture of the cupola and copper weathervane on top of Barrington’s Metra station. The Blue Heron design is a nod to the official bird of the Village of Barrington and it was designed by a local artist named Don “The Copper Guy” Murphy. He designs weathervanes for buildings across the country and you can learn more about him on his website at CopperGuy.com.
Here’s another, more revealing look at the spot where we took that picture. Oh how I miss taking the train down to work in the city!
