Geocache Description:

The first cache in Vollmar, Colorado.

Most people driving down Weld County Road 23 might note the refurbished old Vollmar School as they look east down WCR 20, but the reminders of one of the purely Hispanic communities in the region are disappearing. In its heyday, Vollmar had dozens of homes, an active Catholic church, ball fields, a dance pavilion and the school. The church, once a centerpiece for the area’s Hispanic community, sits in ruins, though the pews and an altar are still intact. The Vollmar Cemetery sits on a hill above the town, with 50 or 60 graves — the headstones all bear Hispanic names, according to a book of Weld County tombstone inscriptions. The cemetery is no longer maintained, though locals say they occasionally see fresh flowers on some graves.

You will be searching for a camoed 35mm film canister in beautiful downtown Vollmar. Brring your own pen or pencil to sign the log book.
