How Geocaching Works

A white elephant is a supposedly valuable possession whose cost and upkeep exceeds its usefulness, and is thus a liability. The term derives from the sacred white elephants kept by Asian monarchs. A white elephant was regarded as a sign that the kingdom was blessed with peace and prosperity. Because the animals were considered sacred, laws protected them from labor, therefore receiving a "gift" of a white elephant from a monarch was both a blessing and a curse.
The old seed-cleaning plant to the south-west of the cache was converted to a courthouse at a cost of approximately $3,670,000 for a single trial which never took place. It was guarded round the clock for several years after and has since been used for storage.
