How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This is a cemetery offset cache. Due to the proximity of other caches near the cemetery, a short drive will be required to a rather uninteresting location to find the final.
The posted coordinates will bring you to St. Casimir Cemetery in Krakow.
In 1892, Fr. Jerome Schneider celebrated mass for the first time in Krakow. Prior to this time, early Krakow settlers needed to travel six miles to Pulaski. In 1900, John J. Hoff deeded land for the Catholic Church and cemetery. The cemetery was replotted and improved in 1927 and again in 1954. Improvements have been ongoing and the cemetery is very well cared for. You will find no shortage of Polish surnames in this cemetery.
The posted coordinates will bring you to a large white cross in the cemetery.
The reference point coordinates will bring you to a grotto in this cemetery.
To find the cache:
At the first point (the white cross), there is a date on the cross. Let the numbers in this year = ABCD. At the second point (the grotto), there is also a year. Let the numbers in this year = WXYZ.
The cache is located at:
N 44 45.5BW

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 over 100 cemeteries in Shawano County, and nearly all 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.
