Geocache Description:

The coordinates will take you to a match stick container that holds a puzzle you need to solve. The puzzle will take you inside the library, to a book. The inside cover of the book will lead you to an ammo box.

You will need to visit when the library is open. Click here to view the library hours.

The book tells all about the lost "Old Cemetery at Ostrander". Ostrander itself is an old ghost town and you can read about that too in the book. Feel free to have a seat and peruse all you want. The cemetery information begins on page 25. The book can not be checked out.

The cemetery is on private property so you can not actually go and see it. I was very lucky to gain permission to visit this cemetery back in the 1990's. It is just as described in the book. I do not know who the current owner is so if you want to secure permission to visit you will need to find that information out yourself.

Coordinates for the cemetery are provided in case you want to view the cemetery from the road. Look for the clump of pines on the edge of the woods north of where you are. It's a long way.

Have fun learning about this lost graveyard!

Permission to place this cache was granted by Kristi Pennebecker, director of the library.
