El Paso 150
In Wisconsin, United States
How Geocaching Works
This is a fairly quick park and grab; you are looking for something similar to a camo peanut butter jar. This cache was placed in honor of the 150 year celebration of El Paso, WI celebrated on April 5, 2009. Enjoy the views around this great area. Not sure if there is off road parking in the winter.
The Town of El Paso is located nearly in the center of Pierce County, WI. The Town of El Paso has one small village named El Paso, which is usually a quiet town with the exception of the third weekend of August, at which time the annual El Paso Days celebration takes place. Then the tiny hamlet swells to perhaps 2,000 people! There are games for all ages, a horse pull, a horseshoe tournament, and a greased pig contest, all topped off with a grand parade.
The river that flows through the Town of El Paso is the Rush River. There are a few creeks including Brush Creek, Cave Creek, and Lost Creek. The river and creek valleys are picturesque places to visit.
The first annual meeting was held April 5, 1859, only ten years after Wisconsin was admitted statehood in the United States of America. The Irish, German, and Scandinavian immigrants were among the first to settle in the Town of El Paso. Soon other immigrants followed.
