Geocache Description:

**PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE CACHE LID AND GO TO THE GLASS FRONT DOOR NEAR TO WHERE THE COORDINATES ARE LOCATED FOR THE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS BELOW!!!**

You are looking for a Ziploc container… You are out in the open for all to see!!! The terrain is flat/grassy however may be muddy after a rain. There is no parking so side street parking is the only route, unless you have walked or biked to GZ! The park is closed after dark!!

#10 of 11 PLEASE FOLLOW THE SERIES IN ORDER 1 - 11!

This is a multi-cache! You will need to PRINT and answer the questions (see below) in order to get the coordinates for Cache #11! The answers to these questions can be found at the second stage to this Multi-cache!

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 properly. 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…



Site of an old farm from the 1890s – 1960s, the creek that ran through the farm is still exists here although diverted from its original waterway. The farm house and barnyard was located directly across the street.

Do not forget to post photos of your adventure!

Congrats to scottberks for being the first to find!
