Geocache Description:

Seek out a Georgia Historical Marker. Retrieve the coordinates, text, and a picture of the marker.

Note: Currently, listed coords are not to a marker (simply a placeholder). Will update to a marker when I go get one.

With almost 2600 markers to choose from, it should prove to be little trouble for people. I've passed many of these markers BG (before geocaching) and pass them all the time now as I'm sure that you do as well. Go to the webpage provided by University of Georgia's Carl Vinson Institute of Government(CVIOG) to pick out a few markers that you want to search out. Please pick out ones that currently do not have a picture and text for reasons that are explained at the end of the cache report.

Once at the location of the marker, get the coordinates and a picture of the marker. You may find and post as many of the markers as you wish, but you may only count one as a find.

Please include the following in your post:

  • Quality picture of the marker (No need for you to be in picture, actually preferred that you're not)
  • The text on the marker
  • The lat/long in minute decimal format WGS-84 datum of the marker (N37 13.432 W083 56.913 for example)

Note: I was unaware of cache GC402F, when I thought up the idea for this cache. Hopefully, the cache owner is not offended because while this cache is similar in nature, it is also different. I was not attempting to take or steal his idea for a cache. If you wish to do this Georgia specific marker cache you should NOT also log the generic marker cache (GC420F), even with another historical Georgia historical marker. Post the info on the other markers here, so the data can be used to update the CVIOG. Enjoy!
