Where in the World is Gary? #202

This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.

I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!

The answer to yesterday’s place (#201) is Paris, France

Longitude — 70° 16′ West

This place was once called Falmouth. It is intimately associated with Casco Bay. It was founded in 1632 with fishing as its main industry. This city was once the capital of its state. A nearby lighthouse, the first ever constructed on the Atlantic coast (1791), is often photographed.



Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was born here.
