"P" Marks the Spot: Saint Joseph's Church
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This Geocache is part of a series of caches about the history of Plymouth.
This cache is intended to mark the location of and share information about Saint Joseph's.
Thank you very much to mnfishnutz for the location idea!
The church was organized in 1856. A log church was built in 1858 and called St. Francis. The current structure was built in 1877 for $2,600 and was named St. Joseph's for the patron saint of the donor. St. Joe's Little Church,as it sometimes called, is the burial site of Anthony LeCounte. He is considered to be the earliest settler to build a log cabin in Plymouth, which was located on the east side of Medicine Lake.
This is my Girl Scout Gold Award Project (like an Eagle Scout Project). It is a Historical Tour of the City of Plymouth through Geocaches. Plymouthmnhistoricalsociety.com has more information on other historical sites in the city. Currently, it also has approximate GPS coordinates of other sites as well as information and pictures of them. In the future, more Geocaches will be added.
I hope you enjoy the cache and learn something too!
The contents of the cache include some small inexpensive trinkets and a log book and pencil.
