This is cache # 1. Record the code letter found inside the cache container in box # 1 on your Passport. This is your proof that you found the cache. The letter could be anywhere within the container or log sheet and will look like this: "A" where A = any letter or number found in the container.

Cache is large enough to hold a number of fun treasures, log book and pen. Please leave the pen with the logbook. Cache is also accessible from the walkway.

Located at the Washington County Chamber of Commerce, open Mon-Fri 8:30-5. Visitor information, relocation packets and more can be found inside. The official Visitor Center is located just a few blocks north at 115 West Main Street.

The big rock in our garden is Texas pink granite and was one of many rocks that shook off the flat cars of the HT&C Railroad when they were being transported from Granite Mountain in Burnet County to Galveston. These rocks were used in the building of the Galveston Seawall which was started in 1902 and finished in 1904. The train passed through Burton & Brenham dropping rocks along the way!
