Geocache Description:

You are looking for a larger pill bottle that can hold small trackables and swag items.


Tile silos were built mostly during the 1920s throughout rural America until concrete took over as the preferred material for silo building. Here is some information we found about the construction of tile silos: "Sometimes erroneously referred to as brick silos, the hollow-tile silo is made of hollow, hard burned or glazed tile blocks reinforced typically by iron bands which fit into the mortar between the blocks or in grooves made in them. The curved blocks are laid on a concrete foundation. If the blocks are properly glazed, they are impervious to air and moisture. The hollow spaces in the blocks serve as protection against changes in temperature."

We drive by this old ceramic tile silo on the corner of Edgewood Drive and Highway 13 all the time. Ever since we started caching, we have been trying to think of a way to place a cache that would highlight this silo. We have elected to do a straightforward traditional cache here that will take you to a good viewing point off the highway. The silo itself sits on private property, and you will not need to go near it to find this cache.

Take some photos of the silo while you are here and share them in your cache log. We have seen and taken photos of this "famous" Adams County silo at all times of the day and in all seasons. Now we'd like to see your works of art from this cache location. Enjoy your visit!
