I believe you are correct. I stumbled across it like a blind squirrel.

It looks like the Goldpanner campground in Chicken Alaska

Yes, it is Chicken, Alaska. Chicken has no water system, no electric system, and no sewer system. They only have individual water wells, generators, septic systems, and outhouses. If you look close at the campground picture, you will see no hookups.

The mud and dirt you see on the truck and trailer are from driving the Top of The World Highway (highway, yea right!) in wet weather. Took me $10 worth of quarters when we got to Tok, AK just to get the mud off the rig.

A couple of more interesting facts about Chicken, AK....they wanted to name the town Ptarmigan, a native grouse type of bird, but no one could spell it. Also, once a year in the summer they have a music festival there, and they call it.......wait for it.......Chicken Stock.

Where Is This?

History Monument, State Park, NE, a little off the main road and probably visited by few unless you are a historian. Honouring a gentleman who is buried in the "Sacred Grove".

My wife's GG? Grandfather was the stone mason on this project as well as many other projects in the area. ( I would have to verify the generation?)

Those four canons pointed into the ground at the corners of the monument must be for gopher control.

Is there any significance to what appears to be German flag on the Fence?

I believe that's the Steuben monument, at the Steuben Memorial State Park, in the eastern part of Steuben, Oneida County, New York, that honors Baron von Steuben, the "Drillmaster of the American Revolution."

Here's one that I think you'll never get unless you've been there, and then it's easy. What is this, where is it, and who lived there?

You are correct Steve for post 481.
New York Steuben Memorial State Park.
Steuben Memorial State Historic Site - NYS Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation

You were on the right track Ken, (with reference to the German Flag) but I think the "cannons" are illumination devices for the monument, not gopher cannons.

This threw me off:

History Monument, State Park, NE

I interpreted that as: It is a historical monument in a state park in Nebraska. I am guessing that in this case NE is either New England or Northeast. I hope you don't send much mail to the US.

484:

A search has led me to believe it is Thomas Jefferson's home - Monticello.


Weathervane



The compass rose on the ceiling of the Northeast Portico was connected to the weathervane on the roof. Thomas Jefferson and his family could determine the wind direction without stepping outside by looking from the windows in the Entrance Hall and in the North and South Square Rooms.
