Geocache Description:

This virtual cache is easy to spot once you find the site. I would even classify it as a "Drive-by Caching" if necessary.

Many years ago, I was planning a trip to this historic area and was floored that there were no caches here! So... I just had to place one; the first in the Amana Colonies. Please plan to spend all day in the area to really appreciate the site. This cache will be easy to find, so save it until the end of your day of shopping and enjoying the towns. Also this site is located near the beginning of a terrific bike trail.

To get credit for this cache, you must email me the number of windows on the side of the big blue/gray structure that faces the railroad tracks.

Prior to 10/8/12 there was a different question, so some of the older posts won't make sense to new visitors to this virtual. I didn't want to take this virtual cache down, because virtuals are now vintage and this location is really cool. A special thanks for Dame Deco for helping me develop a new credit-question. Happy Caching!

p.s. Pictures are highly encouraged of the Depot and this structure, but please don't "spoil" it for other cachers by giving up too much information.
