Leonard Harrison State Park honors Leonard Harrison (1850-1929) of Wellsboro. Mr. Harrison was a civic-minded businessman and banker who contributed his time, energy and finances to the betterment of his home community. Leonard Harrison State Park originally consisted of 121 acres and was called “The Lookout”. Mr. Harrison owned and developed the area as a public picnic ground. He gave the area to the Commonwealth in 1922. The park was further developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the mid-1930s. A bronze monument to their achievement is on the overlook. Additional lands were added in the park in the late 1940s. Okay, on to the cache: You will find yourself at a CCC – Civilian Conservation Corps – interpretive site. Take some time to learn a little about the CCC as you search for the cache. From this spot you will now need to look for a man who isn’t wearing a shirt – and is not moving, nor will he ever. Put your right hand on the photo of Mr. Roosevelt in a comfortable position and sight through the nonmoving man’s left armpit at a point in the distance behind him. The cache will be hidden there (watch for Signal).
