1- The Tallest structure in your area. Anything goes. Building, statue, silo you name it just has to be the tallest for your area. If you have it give the size too.

538'



2- The oldest building or one with an interesting histroy behind it. Again details do your research
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mordecai_House
Built in 1785. Oldest residence in Raleigh on its original foundation.



3- Smallest occupied building (no pump houses or sheds here guys) business or residence that people live or work in. give size if you can.
Tough one. Not a lot of documentation on this kind of thing, but, from this document:
http://www.ncsu.edu/ncsu/facilities/...P_Workshop.pdf
This is "Smallest occupied building: Centennial Campus Information Booth 210 GSF"



4- Wierdest or oddest shaped building (ie round or barrel shaped) if you don't have one like that then one that would make you say WOW! or Damn! (messiest or funny color)
I'm going to have to go with:



5- Scariest building OR place. We need the story behind it. (ghost, strange lights,etc)
And as luck would have it, the Mordecai House is also haunted.
If I'd have been extremely creative, I probably could have gotten the PNC Building from the same location.
