Your goal is to answer the following questions:

1. Where is this? (Exact location required.)
2. What is significant about this place? (Why is it known, or what happened here, or what is interesting about this place?)

If nobody is able to figure it out without any clues, I will answer 10 questions, but the response must be YES or NO.

Have fun!

DarkHorse is correct! IW was also right about it being on the border of Washington State & Vancouver, but it is not a 49th parallel alteration.

Point Roberts, WA is an exclave of the U.S. similar to the Northwest Angle in Minnesota, although that WAS a surveying error.

Point Roberts is a bit of an oddity in that it’s not an island and yet it’s completely separated from the rest of the U.S. The only way to travel from Point Roberts to the rest of Washington and the U.S. is by passing through one international border crossing into Canada, driving 25 miles, and passing through another international border crossing into the U.S., which is a daily trek for schoolkids above third grade.
