Yes, it’s a real sign. Yes, the key is exactly where the sign says it can found. Yes, visitors are welcome.
What is behind the door? And exactly what kind of “guard at gate” is referred to by the sign?
It's not a doll's house, is it?
Nope. It's a full scale building and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
I'm going sailing. Maybe some other esteemed blogger will have guessed it by the time I return.
Very good, Doc! Now… Any guesses as to what specific church this may be? And what “guard at gate” is being referred to?
Well, one of the reasons I thought 'church' was that the sign might be playfully alluding to the keeper of the big gate upstairs, but then maybe I'm waxing too metaphorical again.
I did check and there are 487,321 churches in Maryland on the National Register of Historic Places. So, this must be one of them. Should I start guessing alphabetically or by county?
My second guess, by the way, is Fort McHenry.
Fort McHenry is incorrect.
We had an earlier posting here that directly referred to something that this church was involved with – and knowing my normal hangout routine should help you.
My second guess, by the way, is Point Lookout.
Warmer. As in… same county.
St. Ignatius Roman Catholic Church, St Inigoes, MD.?
My third guess, by the way, is St. Mary's City.
My fourth guess, by the way, is St. Ignatius Roman Catholic Church
And if my fourth guess is correct, my fifth guess by the way, is that to get the key you have to go to that gatehouse just up the road which is presumably guarding the entrance to that naval airfield?
I would like to point out that my answer at 4:32pm was submitted before O Docker's sneaky earlier submission of my answer was actually published. So I declare a dead heat.
I would like to point out that my answer at 4:16pm was deduced from Tillerman's 4:32pm answer since, living in California, I know everything that will happen in Rhode Island three hours before it actually does.
And if my first guess is correct, my second guess by the way, is that this is the southernmost church in Maryland that requires you to go to a Naval electronics facility to get the key.
I declare O Docker winner of the first part of the question.
I declare Tillerman winner of the second part of the question.
Nicely done sir. I am becoming addicted to your quizzes.
