Geocache Description:

this is a multi using the murals around downtown charleston - many thanks to CYBret for performing a test run on this one for me.

this cache will have you searching around downtown charleston to check out the murals painted by various artists depicting some famous folks from charleston and important historical events. this is not a cache to do in a rush - figure on this one taking a bit of time as you need to FIND the murals, and then travel from scene to scene answering questions. try parking near the posted coordinates - it's a decent central location!

i will not be providing you with coordinates to all the murals you need to visit. i will, however, provide you with some boundries to stay within while searching. i have included photo-snippets of the murals to aid in your search.
