How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This multi on the Yellowstone Trail takes you first to a historic plaque in front of the St Lawrence Catholic Church, which is a beautiful, large church in a tiny little town. The final is located in a public hunting area north of town. This church was built in 1880 - 1882, and travelers on the Yellowstone Trail went right along the front of the church, where highway 175 is today.
First visit the church at the coordinates listed above. Then find the cache at:
A = The fourth digit of the year the congregation was organized
B = The number of crosses on the top of the steeple
C = The number of sides on the steeple
D = The third digit of the year the church was served by Father Rehrl
E = 3
F = The number of clocks on the steeple
This is one of several caches I have placed along the route of the historic Yellowstone Trail. The trail is a historic motor route that went across Wisconsin from 1918 to 1930. The Wisconsin portion of the Yellowstone Trail is 406 miles long, starting at the state line south of Kenosha and going north, and then west to Hudson. The Wisconsin segment is just a part of one of America’s first transcontinental auto routes, a 3,754-mile long road that started in Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts and went to Puget Sound, Washington.

(Please note that this replaces the earlier cache here which had to be archived because the church did not want geocachers in the cemetary. Those who found that cache, should feel free to hunt this one as well, as the final is no longer in the cemetary.)
