What year was the stone barn built? HINT: check the cornerstone. Who owned the property at that time? When did Fredrick Jab own the farm?

This is one of the most interesting parks I have found. If you take the State Corridor Trail, it's about a 1-1/4 mile walk to the farm. You will walk (or bike) on a gravel road until you reach Sand Creek. The trail becomes softball-sized rocks as you cross the water. You can also reach this cache by following the Mazomani Trail, but it's probably a longer walk, and you can't ride a bike.


The entrance is on a dead end road (145th Street W.), off of Hwy. 169 South, that goes past the Renaissance Festival. It is located in Louisville Township.

PLEASE NOTE THE GC.COM RULE THAT THE PHYSICAL SITE OF A VIRTUAL CACHE MUST BE VISITED IN ORDER TO LOG THE FIND. I had to delete logs from people who almost certainly did not visit the physical site. I will continue to check each log to verify that the finder appears to have visited the physical site, and if it is highly likely that you did not, your log will be deleted, even if you answer the question correctly. In order to have a fair playing field, everybody in the game needs to follow the same rules.
