How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Be careful parking for this cemetery as there is only on-road parking. Also, the cemetery grounds are rougher and rockier than you would normally expect in a cemetery, which is the reason for the "climbing" attribute that was the best match. Not recommended for children.
It was always our intent to focus on "lonely and forgotten" cemeteries in this series. This place meets that intent perfectly, and is perhaps our favorite cemetery. Please be respectful, and watch your footing. You are looking for a small camoflauged container.
According to the Wisconsin Cemetery Survey of 1985: The Boreen sisters said that their father donated part of his land for the cemetery with only a handshake. The property donated was never documented, therefore it was forgotten about. For some time it was part of a cow pasture -- this did much damage to the cemetery. The sisters are again donating the parcel back to the town and this time documenting the transaction.
Path to the Cemetery
There are many rural cemeteries in Wisconsin. Geocaching is a great way to get out and see some of these remote places, discover some interesting and unique markers, and to help ensure that those that have gone before us are not forgotten. With cemetery caches, the cache container is not hidden on or connected in any way to any grave site or marker. Occasionally, some information from a marker may be used to obtain final cache coordinates. Please be respectful of the cemetery and anyone visiting it.
About the WSQ-SCC Series
WSQ stands for "Wisconsin Spirit Quest, which is used by many Wisconsin cemetery cache owners. SCC stands for Shawano County Cemeteries, and the number between the two represents the location of the cemetery on a master map, which you can find by clicking HERE. The name after SCC is the name of the Township, then comes the name of the cemetery.
There are 99 cemeteries in Shawano County, and nearly all now have geocaches in them, bringing new visitors to these places to remember those who have gone before us. You just might find a long-lost relative or two.
These caches are designed to be easy to find, are usually a container and log only, and focus on “forgotten,” out-of-the-way, rural cemeteries. Also, any multi-stage caches are designed to bring you to special features of a particular cemetery.
