How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Morgan Siding was once a booming lumber area. The community is named after Ole Morgan, who worked in the lumbering business. The word siding comes from the railroad that used to run through Morgan. A side rail is called a 'siding,' and there used to be a siding that ran west off the tracks and was used for loading and unloading. From this came the name Morgan Siding. Today, the railroad is gone and a trail remains, and the lumber mill is long gone. There are, however, three churches and numerous houses in Morgan.
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.
