This cache is part of the National Great River Road 70th Annual Caching Event. The code for this cache is located inside the logbook, as well as on the outside of the ziplock containing the log. If you would like more details on the event, please visit the link above.
The Great River Road where this cache is located, runs through Issaquena County in the Mississippi Delta. The name Issaquena comes from two Indian words: issa, meaning deer, and okhina, the poetic name of river (water road). The name is in reference to Deer Creek which is a tributary of the Yazoo River. The creek winds its way through many counties in the delta.
Now on to this specific location:
It's been quite a while since the sounds of worship have been echoed in this small church. There isn't much left on the inside except some old bibles and the wall plaques that use to keep up with items such as attendance and bibles brought. The church was a small African American Baptist church, but the name isn't found anywhere on the exterior of the building, but upon inspection of some of the items inside, you will find the name United Baptist Church. The building is open, but be careful if you choose to venture inside, since the building is beginning to decay.
Also located next to the church is a small cemetery, where I'm sure some of the previous members have been laid to rest. Someone has been keeping the grass cut and the grounds cleaned up, so hopefully this little piece of history will last a little longer.
You will be looking for a small ammo can. I hope you enjoy the hunt, and your drive along the Great River Road!
