Geocache Description:

The posted coords will send you to a cemetery. The story I heard was that the original colonial owner of this land wanted to use it as a farm. When this proved too difficult for various reasons, he donated the land as a cemetery. You do not have to visit this place. Parking there for this puzzle cache would also be a strange idea. Regardless, the question mark had to appear somewhere.

If you do want to visit, take a drive around the neighborhoods NE of the cemetery in what is known as the Hillside Ave Historic District. Many excellent examples of Victorian architecture can be seen on the tree-lined streets. Dudley Moore spent his final years just around the corner. A former NJ governor lives in this neighborhood. Thomas Edison built a house for his daughter here, and Lucille Ball resided close by as well.

The photo seen below has been slightly edited to obscure the name. It shows a well. The well was used by both the Colonials and the Red Coats during the Battle of Short Hills, 1777.
Find this well, stand in front of the sign. Mark a waypoint. Subtract 671 from your WEST tudes and add 754 to your NORTH tudes. This will lead you to a driveway a short drive away. Final cache is a screwtop pill container, in crotch of tree to the left as you enter. Have fun.
Join the fun with your own photo cache. Just start with the next number up in the series and I will add it to the original page.
