Can you tell us where this is for a chance to win $500?

July 28, 2005

We have a $500 reason for you to check out downtown Hagerstown. That's the prize for The Herald-Mail's ninth annual landmarks contest.

Through Friday, we will publish photographic clues for recognizable spots in Hagerstown.

The 10 clues can be spotted within three blocks north, south, east or west of Hagerstown's Public Square. They are not historic landmarks, but they are relatively distinct parts of the downtown area.

We will publish close-up images of buildings, structures, walls, gates - just about anything that's a fixture - in the designated part of Hagerstown. All clues are visible from sidewalks, alleys, streets or parking lots.

Participants simply need to identify the images and fill in the name of the building or structure and its location on the numbered entry blank, which will be reprinted in Friday's Family section.


Five clues appeared in Sunday's Lifestyle section. One was on the front of Monday's Health section. Another appeared on Tuesday's Next page. A clue also was published on the front of Wednesday's Food section.

When you've identified the images, fill in the entry blank. Include your name, address and daytime telephone number.

Identify as many as you can for a chance to win. The person who correctly identifies all 10 pictures will win $500. If there's a tie, one name will be randomly drawn from among the names of those who qualify. If no one correctly identifies all the photos, the person with the most right answers will win.

Employees of The Herald-Mail and their families are not eligible.

  • Drop it off at The Herald-Mail office, 100 Summit Ave., Hagerstown, between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.
