Helfin's Store:
Heflin's Store is located in a village initially named George Town that developed in the early nineteenth century at the nucleus of a milling and agricultural settlement on Broad Run west of Thoroughfare Gap. During the westward expansion of Prince William County, the earliest grantees to this fertile Broad Run Valley crossed the Carolina Road and arrived by way of the gap between the Leathercoat and Biscuit mountains of the Bull Run range in 1725. These settlers and their followers found the racing waters of Broad Run and the upper and lower forks of its southeast-flowing Trap Branch suitable for gristmills, and there were a dozen within the vicinity by 1815.' Although Capt. John Frogg appears to have built the first or second earliest gristmill here before 1747 upon the same 1743 land grant that would contain the future Little Georgetown store and village, its precise location remains unclear.'

Yeah, he probably should have, as there is more than one location in Virginia where something with that name can be found.

good point. but why do we need the riddles or vague hints in the clues?

Riddles? Vague hints? WTH are you talking about? No one else has complained. YOU figured it out. Must not have been too hard.
Post up or PM if you can't figure the clues. Don't screw up the tag by giving away the answer. You should know better than that.

To be honest, I can understand...you probably don't want it to sit for WEEKS like it did in...downtown Richmond.

NEW TAG
This monument can be found on a road named after a former secretary of the interior who shares the same last name as the war heroes listed on the monument.

nice grab and tag 5punks

bwalsh, I got lucky on my search and it took 30 to 40 minutes to get lucky. I remember we went round and round with vague hints and riddles in the first couple of years of the game. It's not a riddles game, it's a riding game

and sometimes, it just sits

30 to 40 minutes? What are you using for a computer, an abacus?

Next time...ask for more clues, which I would have gladly given, instead of blurting out the answer like a child in kindergarten, OK?

Contrary to what you, and others may think, I don't try to make them difficult. I even had a couple more pics I could have posted. I wasn't going to post the store pic but figured I'd make it easy so I wouldn't have to tag police crying foul. Go figure...

we went through a bunch on riddles one time and it bumped a bunch of peeps out of the game. if you keep it simple, you get more people in the game.
