Geocache Description:

Welcome to the Fairfield Hills Series!

This is a series of seven caches all on the property of Fairfield Hills, Newtown, CT and all are within walking distance of each other. Note: Many Building/Structures are not open to the public, please be careful to not trespass.

This is the 5th (Cinque) of 6 traditional caches in the Giriando series. The series can be done in any order. This cache was moved to a drier location. Watch out for muggle activity in the new location.

The final cache (7th-sette) is a puzzle cache. In order to find it, you will need to find six code words AND their corresponding code number (not the number of the series). Each of the 6 caches in the series will give you exactly 1 code word and a single digit code number. Look under the lid.

Please read the cache page for Sette (7) so you understand what you are looking for: Fairfield Hills Series - Sette (7) (GC210ET)
Enjoy the series.

You will find a magnetic toy in each cache, please do not remove from the cache.

Congratulations to Alphadog for FTF and Vonuberoydawg on FF(First find)!

Fairfield Hills Fact: Due to deinstitutionalization in the 1960s and 1970s, there was less of a need for hospitals like Fairfield Hills. With the high cost of running underused hospitals, state hospitals around the country shut their doors. In 1995, Gov. John Rowland closed Fairfield Hills and its sister hospital, Norwich State Hospital. All patients that remained were moved to Connecticut Valley Hospital in Middletown.
