Geocache Description:

Villa Junghans is worth seeing. The cache is hidden outside it, the nearest point of the building (the old stairs) being about 10 m from the cache.
Box = 0,4 l.

Villa Junghans on rakennettu n v 1916 luultavasti eräälle Bad Grankullan johtajalle. V 1923 Constantin Junghans osti huvilan ja asui siinä perheineen v 1944 asti, jolloin sota pakotti pakoon. Seuraavana vuonna perhe sai traagisen kuoleman.
I ca 25 år använde den sovjetiska ambassaden villan. När tomten år 1975 genom markbyte kom i Grankulla stads ägo var villan så förfallen att staden beslöt att riva den. Den aktiva svenska pensionärsföreningen m.fl. protesterade och efter diskussioner gick man in för att bevara villan och bygga till den för pensionärernas behov. Vid invigningen sade stadsdirektören: "nu har pensionärerna fått sin ungdomsgård".
In the years 2009-2010 Villa Junghans has been enlarged as we retired will increase in number.
Until May 2014 this cache was a pretty hedgehog in the garden, but because of muggles there has been metamorphosis and now the cache is more like a bird. Please put it so that the red cap is out of sight. You can log it without removing the camo around it.
