Geocache Description:

You are looking for a Ziploc container, tied to twine… BE VERY CAREFUL, this area is steep and water awaits you! Need I mention Muggles???? The area may be full of them and then there is a creek! Be careful around the water and remember that all parks close after dark!


LEARN ABOUT LOCAL HISTORY WHILE GEOCACHING!!! This is the Raupp Museum’s first ever Geocaching Series!!! This is a cache series that will lead the Geocacher around town highlighting our local park history. Some of these sites may go unnoticed to the average person until they have been made aware of them. To commemorate this series 200 geocoins have been created.

You must complete the all of the sites within the series (#1 through #11) in order to follow the series. Do not forget to log your finds! Remember, my goal is to have Geocachers learn a little about our town’s history.

The first to find all of the caches will receive a prize inside of cache #11, a FREE Buffalo Grove history geocoin! Only 200 have been made and will not be reissued after they are gone…

This is the site of a swimming hole used in the 1930s. The photo in this container was taken on this spot, along this very creek. In 1962 the first Buffalo Grove Days is held and Emmerich Park is dedicated.

Do not forget to post photos of your adventure!

Congrats to scottberks for being the first to find!
