Geocache Description:

Located by the purdy section of the Milton Cemetary. Please Park at the Disbrow park. Beware of poison ivy. Please note that the cache is near what was once a dump 30 years ago, so be prepared to CITO. Since then the City of Rye has done a great job maintaining the grave yard, and is very nice.

This cache is in a relatively small latch lock box. It is down the trail from the Purdy section of the cemetery - a pre-revolutionary family that had came to Rye in 1685. You will find nice bridges, brooks, and magnificent headstones dating back to the late 1600's. There are baseball fields and playgrounds nearby so you can bring your kid(s) along too. Even your dog! Be carful while near the walls and headstones...they are very old. Original contents include two geopins, a geocoin, and many other items. The logbook and the pencil are not for trade. Do not seek after sunset. Enjoy the hunt.

Congratulations Biffgnar for being FTF!
