Question

Hmmmmm......would a public library be a government building ?? !! We've got an ancient one nearby.

Never mind. I just remembered a more ideal "government building" in a town not too far away. It will be a great grab if I get it in the AM.

A library would work, additionally, seeing as something from the 1700 would rule out a good many states how about a government building from the 1700s OR 1800s.

Talking New Tag. Hey Bird & baby in N.C.

The new tag element is a local, independent bottling company. In this case, a local and still popular soda company but a "micro-brewery" would also work.
Great riding here in New England, in January. So far we have no winter. Fine by me !!!

Found an independent bottler...and it's not even a micro-brewer. Put a pot of coffee on. Heading out for a night grab. Google says 49 minutes to my destination but I imagine it'll take longer when I factor in the "get lost" time. Have a new tag picked out and will grab on the way back....gonna keep with the theme.

Grab

Bobbees Bottling Company bottles everything from sauces to syrups, marinades to seasonings and according to their website "if you can eat it, we'll bottle it". It's a single location, non-affiliated, independent business. Started as a honey bottler, hence the name... The building isn't much to look at but they have a photo tour of the facility online that's cool. I'm pretty sure that this meets the intent of the tag.

New Tag

Keeping with the independent theme...

Again the building isn't much to look at but it is what is inside that counts. This is Nicks Trains Inc -> a mom and pop owned independent toy and hobby shop in town. http://www.nicks-trains.com/ I remember my home town toy and hobby store from when I was growing up. It was magic to me. I still have the model trains I got when I was a kid. Building the tracks in the basement was pure bliss for me. I also remember when the first Toys R' Us went in. For a young kid it was like going to Santas workshop but I still liked our local store better...it had cooler stuff.

Mom and pop toy stores continue to provide good competition to the box toy store and are actually making a come back. So the new tag is an Independent Toy Store.

GRAB!

Since your picture was of a hobby shop, I figured a hobby shop would work, couldn't find a toy store...

And presuming that's good, the next tag is...


A facility that has the word "Rehab" or "Rehabilitation" on it.
