Geocache Description:

Camo taped matchstick container. Bring Your Own Pencil.

Snook is the only town for me. Yes, someone once wrote a song about it!

Info from the nearby Historical Marker (that's also a Waymark): Settled 1880s by Czech immigrants. First called "Sebesta's Corner". In 1895 named "Snook" for John Snook, who helped secure post office. Soon had a one-room school, a "masova schuza" (slaughterhouse), a cooperative store, and lodge for "Czechoslovak Benevolent Society".
