I vote for 'A'
Where is correct here ..since ...it refers to the place ..where that happened ....

and we need to use 'Had" since we are talking about event before 1897

From the latter half of the sentence ("after 1897"), I infer that 'where' is referring to 'time' in the original sentence. No? I thought only 'when' can refer to 'time' in the GMAT.

Yes ...see we have "Once" in the first part of the sentence which refers to the time ....

now probably u are thinking that ..we need when here instead of where ...but if we put ...when in front of once ....the sentence would be

"when once ...." .......which i dont think is correct ...

Hey, thanks for the expl.; you have the right answer (A).

I'm still a bit unclear about it though because using your example above, using 'where once...' doesn't make sense either (since where is not referring to a place in this case).... ??

This is an unusual construction. Where is typically used to indicate a position.

However, where is an adverb and in this capacity it can modify another adverb ONCE.

So, where once implies loosely the equivalent of "Even though"
