Geocache Description:

#17 in the VPS.


Schuyler Colfax, Jr., had been Speaker of the House before serving under President Grant.  He is one of only two Americans to have served as both Speaker and as Vice-President.  In 1854 Colfax was initiated as a member of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity at DePauw University without ever having attended that or any other university.  After becoming involved in a scandal involving a railroad and a construction company, he was not renominated to run as vice-president with Grant.

This cache should be fairly easy.  Be safe.  Have fun!


** A note from IowaChupacabra: Hello! I am attempting to maintain Blue Grass Tom’s geocaches. Have fun as you travel and explore up and down these Iowa back country roads to find the geocaches in this series. As you do so, if you happen upon a wet log, torn bag, or cracked/damaged/missing container, and graciously make the choice to add/replace paper/bag or change out/replace a container, I would certainly appreciate it and Thank You for the help. I attempt to make a run through the area every few months to fix the problems noted in the logs, but there’s always something! Thank You!
