Apparently, more people need to travel and visit Prophetstown State Park, home of the old-time wagon pictured in the Spotted … in Indiana column in the November issue of Indiana Prairie Farmer. The lucky winner was Jacob Bacon, FFA instructor at Castle High School near Boonville, Ind.

Tons of people recognize the Purdue University campus, at least the College of Agriculture side of State Street. The photo in the January issue’s Spotted … in Indiana column was taken from an upper floor in the new Agricultural and Biological Engineering Building, looking northeast toward the Ag Administration Building. Thanks to everyone who participated, including Purdue alumni from Illinois and Ohio.

The winner is Roy Friedersdorf of Westport, Ind. Congratulations, and happy spotting. If you spot something unusual and it’s used here, you will receive a gift card.
