244. Guess Where Wednesday: A Little Barrington History

Home Newsroom 244. Guess Where Wednesday: A Little Barrington History

I was inspired to mix a little Barrington history with our mystery photo contest after sharing our story about Sam and the history of the Bread Basket earlier this week.  You’ll get a little clue to this week’s mystery photo if you take a closer look at that feature.  This might not be a very revealing photo, but the building holds so much local history.  Can anyone guess where I was standing when I took it?

If you can guess where I was standing, the business you’ll find in this building today or the bustling business that used to occupy the building in the 20th century, you could win this contest!  The prize is something linked to the place where I took the picture.  I’ll admit, you might have an advantage if you know your Barrington history. But, either way, we hope you’ll venture a guess, which is easy to do using the comments box below.

In the meantime, we drew a name to pick a winner from last week’s mystery photo contest and the winner is…

Congratulations, Leigh R. You are right! Last week’s mystery photo is picture of the window outside Cook Street Coffee painted by a local artist with the message “Sip Local”.

Cook Street Coffee is one of dozens of local restaurants, cafes and breweries taking place in this week’s Taste’fest and EXPO hosted by the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce and taking place this Thursday, September 20th. We have two tickets for you, Leigh, for winning our contest. If anyone else wants to come to Taste’fest, tickets are still available and can even be purchased at the door. CLICK HERE for more information on the event and to find out what restaurants are participating and CLICK HERE if you’d like to take another look at last week’s mystery photo and see all of our guesses.

And now to this week’s contest.  Entering is easy!

Here’s how the contest works…
