Geocache Description:


Photobucket

On the west side of Burlingame Road just south of where it crosses over I-470 on the south edge of Topeka, Kansas is the Foster Cemetery. Originally, this was a family cemetery located on private land owned by Robert G. Foster. A deed set a one acre tract apart by deed in 1867 strictly for burial purposes. Birth dates recorded on the tombstones date from 1792.The earliest burial found was 1866. There may have been earlier burials for which no tombstones were located.


The cemetery does have a No Trespassing sign on one side of a fence, but then again I’ve done a cache in a cemetery with No Trespassing signs in it and was told by the two sheriffs parked in it, don’t worry about it. So time will tell how long this cache will stay..
