Geocache Description:

The cache is not located at the posted coords....but at a location near where the grandfather and great-grandfather of some of CACCBAG's members once ran his small butcher shop many years ago.

N 37°44.ABC W 122°27.DEF

Coit Tower is a 2E0 foot (AB m) tower in the Telegraph Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. The tower was built in 193F.
Lillie Coit's fortunes funded the monument four years following her death in 1929. She had a special relationship with the city's firefighters. At the age of fifteen she witnessed the Knickerbocker Engine Co. No. C in response to a fire call up on Telegraph Hill when they were shorthanded, and threw her school books to the ground and pitched in to help, calling out to other bystanders to help get the engine up the hill to the fire, to get the first water onto the blaze.
The observation deck is 3D feet (9.8 m) below the top, with an arcade and sylights above it. A rotunda at the base houses display space and a gift shop.
