Geocache Description:

This is a puzzle cache that must be solved on site.

The Town of Homer, NY was established on March 5, 1794. It lies within Cortland County in the valleys of the West and East Branches of the Tioughnioga River and the ridges bordering them. The Village of Homer was incorporated in 1835.

Famous Homerians include artist Francis Bicknell Carpenter and womens' rights activist Amelia Jenks Bloomer.

Welcome to Homer, NY.

***Everything you need to find the final cache is at the coordinates posted above.***
[Update 2016 - just clarifying as some recent cachers have bypassed stage 1 and left some misleading logs - you do want to look for something specific at the posted coords. They should take you not to the school, but to the park across the street (Central Park Place) from it.]

This cache is highly recommended for kids and should take less than an hour. Although not too hard, it should still provide that "aha" moment and a special surprise at the end.

The cache is available Mon-Fri 2-6PM and Sat 10A-2PM. Closed on holidays.
