Geocache Description:



CACHE IS NOT AT THE ABOVE LOCATION but answers to questions to solve the puzzle are.

Cache can be found at 43°AB.CDE 88°FG.HIJ
Where; D=G=(C-H), A=(B/2)=F, C=A, E=(B-J), J=(A*2), H=I- (minus) the number of children flag is dedicated to, and I= the last digit of the year the gardens were sold.

I have driven by this spot a million times and have always wanted to take a closer look and this great little windmill. Until recently, that was never possible. Now, however, it is since these Peony gardens have been listed on the National register of Historic Places.

Take some time to read the history of this unique place and read up on the Gardens while you are here. It is a great little tribute to the Sisson family and those that followed, including the Rosendale Historical Society whose efforts to preserve what was left of the original gardens and the dilapidated windmill created this nice side attraction for the thousands who drive through this town on the way to somewhere.

I have added Libbyjones as co-author since she has close ties to the Sisson family memorialized here. In fact, her Great Uncle built the windmill when he first started working for the Sissons.

Remembering the proximity rule for bogus and final coordinates will help you solve this one.
