Geocache Description:

Not far from road.  Opposite side of highway from attarction.  10" by 6" Tupperware container.  Initail contents include numerous small toys.


This is the second in a series of geocaches celebrating Colorado's awesome roadside attractions.  "Lilliputian Village" dates from 1920 and has had a tough existence.  Burned to the ground by fire in 1935, ravaged by floods in 1929, 1932 and 1969, and overgrown with weeds in the 1970's and 1980's.  The Argo mill and other buildings on the hillside are likely the only ones that have survived intact since the beginning.  When I first saw "Lilliputian Village," in 1987, it looked forlorn and forgotten, with weeds growing higher than the rooftops.  Ten years later it was refurbished and re-opened and was a frequent family outing when I had young children.  If you have never been to "Lilliputian Village," I hope this cache will inspire drive or walk past this fantastic attraction.

The cache is not on the property, so you do not have to pay to do the cache.  You will get a nice view of the village from the cache site.
