Where in the World is Gary? #210

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 (#209) is Burlington, Vermont, USA

Where in the World is Gary?   #210

Latitude — 40° 00′ North

Longitude — 78° 30′ West

This place was originally called Raystown. The name was eventually changed by the British who built a fort here. George Washington once had his headquarters here and later came back to quell the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794.  The charming town is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
