Other States Trivia Questions

1. Salt Lake City is the capital of Utah. Which fast food restaurant was first established here?

From Quiz
U.S.A: All about Utah

Answer: Kentucky Fried Chicken

Surprisingly, Kentucky Fried Chicken did not originate in Kentucky. Colonel Harland Sanders opened his first KFC franchise in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1952. The property was originally run by Pete Harman and his family, and originally called "Harman's Cafe." Harman met Sanders in Chicago in 1951, who then came to visit him at his family's cafe and cooked his secret recipe of fried chicken using 11 herbs and spices. Harman and his family were so impressed that he made a deal with Sanders to franchise his restaurant on his property. The original restaurant was demolished and refurbished in 2004. The restaurant still has Sanders' original white suit on display in a glass case. Salt Lake City was originally called "Great Salt Lake City" due to how close it is to the Great Salt Lake. The name "Great" was dropped in 1868.

2. Mothman is a folklore figure in West Virginian culture. Which city of the state is he reported to have appeared in?

From Quiz U.S.A: All about West Virginia

Answer: Point Pleasant

Mothman was reportedly seen around Point Pleasant in West Virginia between 1966-1967. He has been described as a humanoid, bird-like, man-sized creature. "The Mothman Prophecies" is a 1975 book that investigated the apparitions, in which the author connects the appearance of Mothman to the collapse of the Silver Bridge on the Ohio River in 1967.

3. The first log cabins in the United States were built in Delaware, but who brought the idea for building them to America?

From Quiz Exploring Delaware

Answer: Finns

Finnish immigrants arrived in the mid-1600s and set about building their new homes from logs. The log cabin became a symbol of the American pioneer. A cabin from the period is preserved and on display at the Delaware Agricultural Museum in Dover.

4. A lot of gold and uranium mining once went on in the area south of Helena, and these defunct mines now attract people who come to drink the radioactive water and bask in this "health treatment". To what are they exposing themselves?

Some of the mines have radon levels as much as 175 times the US federal safety level for homes. People sit in the mines for hours a day, playing cards and reading books while their radon levels increase.

5. How did the land now known as the state of Wyoming come to be the property of the United States?

From Quiz Wyoming - My Home State

Answer: Most of what is now Wyoming was part of the vast Louisiana Purchase acquired from France

The maps showing the extent of the Louisiana Purchase include all but the southwest corner of the modern state. I do love the image of Andrew Jackson winning it in a card game. In his youth, he was quite a gambler and a pretty wild character.

6. This American state was first called New Netherlands, but renamed after the Duke of York, after the English took it from the Dutch settlers. What is the state called now?

7. Although Alabama is the first state alphabetically, it was the 22nd to be added to the union, on December 14, 1819. Its name is thought to be from a Native American tribe, but what do most speculate that Alabama means in English?

From Quiz Do You Really Know the States?

Answer: Here We Rest

The Alabama people were part of the Muskogean tribe that came up with the name. The other names (besides "Harmony in Equality") are other, less popular suggestions as to what the Native Americans named Alabama. For example, some think that the Choctaw influenced the name with their words "alba" meaning plants, and "amo" meaning to cut or to trim or to gather.

8. There are two major universities in central Oklahoma. What are the names of their sports teams?

From Quiz Quirky Central Oklahoma

11. Which American state lies directly south of Utah?

From Quiz U.S.A: All about Utah

Answer: Arizona

Utah does border Wyoming, but Wyoming lies north, as does Idaho. Utah also borders Nevada, but Nevada lies west, and Colorado lies east. The south-eastern corner of Utah meets Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado. The border between Utah and Arizona has been hailed as a great place to view nature. Between the south-eastern border of Utah and the northern border of Arizona lies the striking sandstone buttes of Monument Valley, which is part of the Navajo Indian Nation. Some of these buttes reach over 1,000 feet (305 m) and are popular with hikers.

12. The town of Ridgefield, Connecticut, is located at the foot of which mountains?

From Quiz U.S.A: All about Connecticut

Answer: Berkshire Mountains

The Berkshire Mountains are located in the north-west of Connecticut, and the west of neighbouring Massachusetts. Three states border Connecticut, with Massachusetts lying north, Rhode Island lying east, New York lying to the west. Connecticut also has the Long Island Sound (which is an arm of the Atlantic Ocean) lying to the south. Mount Greylock is the highest mountain of this sub-range of the Appalachians, at around 3,490 (1,060 m) feet high. Ridgefield is a town located in Fairfield County, Connecticut. It features the Keeler Tavern, the summer house of architect and pioneer in skyscrapers, Cass Gilbert (1859-1934), known for designing the Woolworth Building in Manhattan, one of America's first skyscrapers. The Keeler Tavern predates Gilbert's ownership, standing since around 1713. During the Battle of Ridgefield in 1777, the British opened fire on the tavern, upon learning that the basement was used for the creation of musket balls. One British cannonball got stuck in the corner of the building, and it has remained in place ever since.

Hampshire County was established by the Virginia General Assembly almost ten years earlier than the establishement of Romney, in 1753. It was made of parts of Augusta and Frederick counties, then part of the neighbouring state of Virginia. Mitt Romney (born in Detroit, Michigan, 1947) is a Republican politician who ran for the 2012 U.S Presidential election, losing to Barack Obama. Stephen Ailes, who served as U.S Secretary of the Army from 1964-65, was born in Romney, West Virginia.

15. With much exposure to the Atlantic Ocean, how many national parks are there in Delaware?

It is situated in the Ashley National Forest, which runs through the northeast of Utah, and the southwest of neighbouring Wyoming. It was not known as the highest peak in Utah until the 1960s, as before it was debated whether neighbouring mountain, South Kings Peak, was the highest. Clarence King (1842-1901) was the first director of the United States Geological Survey between 1879-1881. A keen mountaineer, he also had Mount Clarence King in Fresno County, California, named after him, as well as the King Peak in Antarctica.

23. In 1860, Abraham Lincoln gave a speech in which city of Connecticut?

From Quiz U.S.A: All about Connecticut

Answer: Bridgeport

On March 10, 1860, Abraham Lincoln gave a speech at what was then called Bridgeport City Hall, now named the McLevy Hall. An advert in the papers specified that Lincoln's speech would "commence precisely at 7 o'clock, as he is obliged to leave on the Express train at 9:07 pm." Lincoln spoke in front of over 100 members of the Republican committee, talking for two hours passionately against slavery. Not only did Lincoln receive a standing ovation for his speech, but a crowd followed him right to the train station, cheering as the train pulled away with Lincoln on it. A year later, Abraham Lincoln was elected U.S President. There is a plaque standing where Lincoln stood during the speech. Bridgeport is situated in Fairfield County, on the Pequonnock River. It is around 40 miles (65 km) from the Bronx, New York City. Famous showman, P.T. Barnum, lived in Brideport for around 40 years of his life, and was even Bridgeport's mayor.

From Quiz Quirky Central Oklahoma

Answer: Gary England

Mr. England and his team of forecasters got me through many a storm season. At the slightest little hint of severe weather, my TV went straight to Gary. He has been instrumental in the invention of more and more accurate forecasting techniques over the years. Gary became the first in history to warn the public of severe weather with Doppler radar in 1981. I love to watch the movie "Twister" because you can see Gary in authentic TV spots covering tornadoes in the early 70s.
