Geocache Description:


The land and water before you are significant in Prince William County's history. Dogue Indians once lived along the Occoquan Creek. The King's Highway passed the County's First courthouse, which stood nearby.

On April 7, 1791 George Washington neared tragedy as he crossed the Occoquan Creek on the ferry. His carriage horses fell overboard. The horses swam, pulling the carriage and our President safely to shore.

The cache is magnetic, and is a nano placed on the fence.

One more note. I put the non-night caching symbol on this, just because I just think it's better and safer during the day, and won't bring attention, but I won't delete finds at night
