    I know I'm a bit geography challenged, but where is this?

    Bess, it's on the Ohio River.

    The Fairgrounds, Hotel, and Casino are on the Southern end of the Island, away from you.

    I lived 2 houses from the River Bank on the narrow channel.

    @Hal Pollner Thanks! If it's above the Mason Dixon Line, I'm totally lost. :D

    I grew up on an Island in the Atlantic called Newfoundland. Spectacular scenery.
    Short summers.

    Martha's Vineyard, Vineyard Haven, Ma. The 1720 House. Back in 1959-1962.
    Was owned by the niece of William Randolph Hearst at the time. we rented for $90/mo., and should have bought ('cept we couldn't afford it at the time).... for $30,000. Sold a few years back for about $1.5 M. Rent now in the summer (the whole house) for only $8400/week..

    @Tom Young It's a shame you couldn't buy the house. It's a beauty!!!
