Geocache Description:


Placement approved by the Prairie du Chien Historical Society.

This is a fairly easy cache near the middle of historic Prairie du Chien. It is a hidden green ammo can containing a logbook, pen/pencil, and several nice starting trade items.

This cache takes you to the site of Fort Crawford, an outpost of the United States Army during the 19th Century. The site currently houses the Fort Crawford Museum, which is operated by the non-profit Prairie du Chien Historical Society.

Two blocks north of the cache is Fort Crawford Cemetery, which has 64 burials from 1829 through 1850.
