Geocache Description:

Near the parking lot for the Thompson Oaks golf course in West St Paul.

This should be a very quick park & grab. Only one place where it could be (considering the cache name)!


Note added Sept 2012: I sure as hell hope it was not geocachers that stripped all that bark off the tree! There is NO reason to damage any part of the tree or its surroundings in order to log a find on this cache!

History note: The large red brick house that you see is the George W. Wentworth house. It is the only home in West St. Paul on the National Register of Historic Homes. George and Mary Wentworth raised 10 children in this house.

George, a stockman and butcher by trade, was owner of the South St. Paul Horse Exchange and a business on Robert Street.

It cost Mr. Wentworth $12,000 to build this house in the 1880's, was offered for sale in 1912 for $9,000, was sold at a sheriff's auction in the 1920's for $400. In 1987, the owners at that time were offered $190,000!
