Pass Go, Collect A One Cup of Java Challenge

Monday's One Cup of Java Challenge: American philanthropist Johns Hopkins was born on this date in 1795. After his death, his wealth would be used to create his namesake university, hospital and medical school, among other entities to which he left his fortune. The making of that fortune is today’s One Cup topic. While Johns Hopkins has his finger in a lot of financial pies, much of his money came from owning a substantial part of an actual property that you can buy on the Monopoly game board. Your One Cup question this morning: name that real world and Monopoly world property.

Answer: The B&O Railroad
