    It looks straight out of the deep south, like an old plantation house. Sure it is not, but it looks like houses in southern Alabama and mid Georgia.

    Here's a clue. It's not actually a real house, it was built to look like one, in the 1960's.

    Several million people a year pay to visit the location of this building.

    No, think of a haunted house in a large amusement park.

    You have the correct name of the land mass but your geography's a bit off.

    First colonized as a penal colony by the British and Dutch, but I'm going to give Goofy a chance instead of jumping in with a geographical correction.

    I am not able to monitor a challenge at the moment; therefore the floor is open.

    I'll give clues if required. I took this photograph myself.

    Where was I when I took it? I'd like a reasonable degree of accuracy.

    Am I in the ballpark if I use Fort St. John as a starting point?
