Geocache Description:

This camo cache is located just outside the growing town of Blue Grass, Iowa.

"According to Blue Grass history, the name of the town originated from a point on a much-traveled Indian trail leading from Davenport to Moscow, and the Cedar River passed by a point of timber on Section 31 in Blue Grass township. This point was a favorite camping ground of the Indians. In time, the prairie grass was trampled down and destroyed by them. In its place sprung up a bluish green grass resembling the famous blue grass of Kentucky. The camping place became known as Blue Grass Point. The township originated, as did the town, being given the name “Blue Grass” when the post office was established in 1840.

In 1853, the village of Blue Grass was platted out by J.E. Burnside, John Perrin and James Reynolds. It is believed that the streets were named after the wives of the founding fathers of Blue Grass. Some of the street names have unusual spellings, whether intentional or originally misspelled. They are still used today - for example: Mayne (Main) Street, Juniata (Juanita) Street."

The above is taken from the History section on www.bluegrassia.org I've lived in this area for about 12 years now, and that Mayne-Main name always puzzled me. Park safely when hunting this cache, even though it's in a remote area. Have fun!
