Geocache Description:

Sunilan risteys on yksi Limingan historiallisista paikoista. Risteys oli jo keskiajalla kylän keskipiste. Tällä paikalla erkanivat vanha Oulun ja Raahen välinen valtatie ja Rantatienä tunnettu jokivartta ylöspäin kulkeva Ylivieskan maantie. Alueella sijaitsi Limingan ensimmäinen kirkko 1400-luvulla. Sunilan sillankorvassa pidettiin viime sotiin asti kesäpestuumarkkinoita, Narikkaa niin kuin Limingassa sanotaan.

Alueen nimi tulee Sunilan talosta, jonka 1700-luvulla rakennettu päärakennus on tienvieressä. Sunila toimi pitkään kestikievarina, jossa on vieraillut Carl von Linné (1732), Ruotsin kuninkaat Adolf Fredrik (1752) ja Kustaa IV Adolf (1802) sekä Venäjän keisari Aleksanteri I (1819).
