MYSTERY: Hmmm, looks like an operating room, but where?

There’s a pretty good chance that if you live in Charleston you might hear about this room sometime this week.  What and where is it?  Send your best guess to: — and make sure to include the name of the town in which you live. (Photo provided.)

The most recent mystery gave a clue that the rigging might give some insight to photo sleuths.  George Graf of Palmyra, Va., Chris Brooks of Mount Pleasant and Charles Boyd of Hanahan correctly guessed that the ships in the picture were replicas of the Nina and Pinta, two of the three ships used by Christopher Columbus in his 1492 discovery of the Americas.

Graf added, “According to, the Nina was built by hand without the use of power tools and has been called “the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built.” The Pinta was recently built in Brazil and is a larger version of the archetypal caravel, a nimble Portuguese sailing vessel, which historians refer to as “the Space Shuttle of the 15th century.” The replicas are operated by the Columbus Foundation, an educational group in the British Virgin Islands.”
