Then and Now Photo Challenge: Mystery House

Once a month, Wakefield Patch runs a contest on the site to see if you can guess where in Wakefield this historical site exists today. So what's your best guess?

Where in Wakefield did this scene exist? 

Any reader who can a) correctly identify what this building was or b) where it existed will win an awesome Patch prize.

Leave your guess in the comments section! First correct answer wins the Patch prize.

Got no idea? Clues will be posted throughout the day. Check back throughout the day for a little help!

Nancy, I am stuck!! St. Joseph's school is on Gould Street and corner of Emerson, as is the old Convent. Could it be right across the street from me?

Diane, you are correct! It was the Blanchard house on the corner of Gould Street and Emerson Street! Good job!

I'm laughing ~ what's that old saying? What your looking for might be right under your nose? Something like that. I am sitting here just getting through making favors for the Easter dinner table and of course I can see the school from my window!! Thanks Nancy for all the fun.
