Last week's Where In Chester? clue proved to be a very recognizable detail among readers.

Let's start with Chester historian Clifton Patrick, who offers some fascinating details with his (correct) answer: "St. Paul Episcopal Church facade facing Main St. From "History of St. Paul's Episcopal Church" by Morris Press. Kearney, NE: "On March 26, 1896 a lot on High St. was purchased from Hiram Tuthill for $30000 for the purpose of building a church (this lot was later deemed unsuitable due to the grade). At this time two trustees were elected; Messrs. Samuel Wilkin and James A. Parkin to whom the deed was made out. On May 25, 1897 at a parish meeting at the Board home a vote was taken and approved to buy the lot where the church now stands. The ground was broken for the new church in early April of 1898. The corner stone was laid on May 16, 1898 by Archdeacon William R. Thomas. The cornerstone contained an historic sketch of the parish, parish receipts, coins left from the first mission, photographs of the Rev. Messrs. Maison. Betts and McGuiness, copies of ‘The Living church,' 'The Chester News' and the 'New York Tribune,' as well as copies of three letters of local interest dating back to the Revolutionary War. The church was dedicated to the worship of the Almighty God on the Feast of the Transfiguration, August 6, 1898.' Attached from the archives of the Chester Historical Society: St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in an undated post card, probably about 1900, before guild room addition. Notice that there is no curb cut for Maple Avenue. Main Street appears unpaved!"

Others who knew where to find the clue include Liam and Mollie Hawthorne, Matthew Van Der Meulen, Mike Korsak, Paul Eversley, Dorothy Dreyer, and Sharon Lunden. Nice work!

Now train your peepers on this next detail, which can be found in Goshen. Where in Goshen hae you seen it? If you think you know, visit chroniclenewspaper.com and click on the Fun & Games tab at the top of the page.
