Geocache Description:

Villa Bensow is situated on a hill, worth seeing. But it is private, so you should not go closer than the cache.

Huvila valmistui 1912 ja kauppaneuvos Wilhelm Bensow osti huvilan samana vuonna. Hän perusti vaimonsa kanssa lastenkodin 1917. Huvila korjattiin 1990-luvulla. Paul ja Svante Olsson suunnittelivat puutarhan v. 1913.
Så här skriver Wilhelm Bensow i sina minnesanteckningar från 1943: "..i februari 1912 köpte jag det hus där vi sedan dess bott. Tomten var då bara 1,5 tunnland, och priset jag betalte var 40 000 mark. Nu omfattar området 34 tunnland och på detsamma finnas uppförda sammanlagt 12 bostadsbyggnader förutom ekonomibyggnader. - En dag år 1916 gjorde min hustru och jag ett besök i pastor Hurtigs barnhem i grannskapet, och då vi kommit hem igen föreslog jag för min fru att vi skulle grunda ett eget barnhem, då hon visat sig mycket intresserad för tanken."

The cache is some ten meters in private area, with permission from owner "Stiftelsen Bensows barnhem". The cache is almost ten meters outside stone wall and about 20 m from the sign "Yksityisalue/Privat område". Come from Gresantie/Gräsavägen.
At start the cache contains some old money and one little modern reflex. The ftf:er may take something.
Almost two meter high. Please, take the hole thing down and open it after that. Put it back as it was.
