No, remember it's not in Nebraska. Just near there.

Storz Brewing was in both Milwauke and Detroit. I used to call on the offices at the Detroit location.

Ah, when I looked it up I just saw the Nebraska one. This isn't in Wisconsin or Michigan either. Same general area though.

I hinted at this clue earlier, but now I'll just come out and say it. This place does not exist anymore.

No, not quite so elusive!

Let's review what we know so far:

Midwest (not Nebraska, Michigan, Wisconsin--think somewhere in the middle).
No longer there.

Last hint for awhile: Late 1800s.

The Coal Palace, Ottumwa, Wapello County, Iowa, U.S.A

I should have known!
And you and James thought I wasn't paying attention when we had lunch!

A gold star for pacanis for paying attention! Yep, that's the Coal Palace!

It was built to advertise Iowa's prominence in coal production: Buildings and building stone: The Coal Palace.

Give us a good one!
