How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Beautifully maintained old cemetary. Paved road into cemetary.
This is the first in a series of caches I plan to place in a circuit through Dodge County. I have researched and studied these cemetaries for interest and sometimes a little history along the way.
Cemetaries hold a great wealth of potential for the geocaching public. I hope that my series will inspire you and get you thinking about life, death, traditions, honor, sadness, beauty, nature, and craftsmanship.
The WSQ indication is in the title to let you know that this is a special Wisconsin Spirit Quest cache. This tells you the cache is located in a cemetary. A higher level of reverance and care is required when searching for these caches. Please be considerate of mourners and monuments. This cache is not placed near any gravesite. Enjoy the hunt. The caches in the series can be done in any order or started in order at any place. Chronological order will get you the best gas mileage.
St. Micheal's cemetary belongs to a catholic church in Beaver Dam that has since combined forces with two other catholic churches to create one church body: St. Katherine Drexel. The three churches are still standing in Beaver Dam and are in themselves quite beautiful. This cemetary is peaceful. The markers are beautifully maintained. Of notice to myself are all the perenial plants planted by many of the markers. The central monument of the crucifix is also a beautiful work of art.
