I saw a building in an isolated area many miles from the city. There were no signs to identify it but it looked like a mosque to me. The building was white stucco, somewhat ornate in architecture. On top was a dome which had a quarter moon with star perched on top but the moon was at a 6 o'clock position directly under the star. What was different was that it was surrounded by banners of brightly colored flags. Sorry, I have no photo. Can anyone tell me if this is a type of traditional Islamic mosque or something else?

Maybe it's a bunch of Shriners. Go ask them.

Why didn't you just go in and ask?

I don't know if you and Fred are serious or not. No one was there but no way would I trespass! A Masonic temple or lodge would have a sign.

I read what you wrote for your location. You must live where I do --so you know the answer to the question above. Folks here are not only stupid but incompetant and lazy. County records *should* all be online but....
