What's in the Window winner and clues for this week

Each week we place clues on a piece of paper in our window at 17 N. Main in Butler in our "What's in the Window" contest and our winner this week is Kera Miller, who correctly guessed the the Battle of Island Mound Historic site:

1862 - year the battle happened
Fort Africa - as the farmstead was nicknamed
Senator Jim Lane - lead recruiting effort 

Kera wins a cool prize courtesy of Osage Valley Electric Coop for her effort!

Clues for this week:

Lead (as the metal)
Maribu feather

If you can guess what landmark, business or historical event (all past or present) these clues lead to, you'll win a really cool prize too!

Please don't put answers on social media, we'd like everyone to have a fair chance. If we don't get a correct answer, we will add another clue each day or so. Winner will be announced Friday, April 30th. Good luck!
