Geocache Description:

In the late 1960's a significant change in the way county hospitals could operate occurred. Laws were enacted which forbade using patients of mental hospitals to perform free labor. Thus, the economics of the farm operations became less financially viable. "Farmwork" was no longer a recognized form of therapy. More energy was put into treating the mentally ill with medicine and talk therapy.

This cache has been hidden on a Marshfield site that has attracted a constant flow of historical enthusiast and curious residents over the decades since its official closure as a hospital farm in 1974. That being said, visitors should take special care around the site during their search.

The cache has been hidden with the permission of the Norwood Industrial Park owners with one condition: Geocachers are not to enter the barn. Entering any of the buildings is not required to find this cache.


Make sure to bring your own pen!
