Welcome back! We hope you are enjoying Name that City!

  1. Geraldine Fredritz Mock became the first woman to fly solo around the world in 1964. In what city did her trip start and end?
  2. In what city would you find a giant playground/jungle gym made from salvaged architectural and industrial objects?
  3. King Records, which became the sixth-largest record company in America, was the home of James Brown and what historians call “True American Music.” In what city was it located?

And here are the answers:

  1. Columbus, OH—Mock’s trip lasted 29 days and covered 22,860 miles in a single engine Cessna 180 that was christened the “Spirit of Columbus.”
  2. St. Louis, MO—It’s the City Museum, a 100-year-old warehouse in downtown St. Louis, where artists have repurposed the pieces of old cities to build miles of tunnels, slides, climbers, bridges, and castles.
  3. Cincinnati, OH—Cincy native Sydney Nathan started King Records. In addition to James Brown, artists who worked for the label included The Dominoes, The Royales, The Swallows, The Platters, The 5 Royales, and The Charms.
