Geocache Description:

This cache brings you to the area where Lemuel Bolles erected the first commercial flour mill in the Minnesota country. The only thing that remains from the mill is the nice creek that runs nearby. There’s also a nice bike and hiking trail.

Coordinates above will bring you to a historical marker which tells briefly about Lemuel Bolle’s mill. To get to the final cache, read the plaque which will give you the data you need.

Final is located at:

N44 54.A B C

W092 46.D E F


A = Fourth digit of the year Lemuel Bolles died

B = Second digit of the year Lemuel Bolles died

C = six

D = Second digit of the year Lemuel Bolles erected on this creek the first commercial flour mill in the Minnesota country

E = zero

F = Fourth digit of the year the sign was erected by the Washington County Historical Society in cooperation with the MN Highway department

Cache is a small lock-n-lock container and is located just a few feet off the main bike trail. Once you decipher the final coordinates enjoy the short walk on the nice path to the final (please rehide as you find it). If you have a few extra minutes, take a walk down to the small bridge crossing the creek. Enjoy your visit!
