Geocache Description:

This is part of the Secrets of Salem series. One of what will be many more to come. A quick two part multi cache in a historic part of town.


The next time you’re at the Dixie Classic Fair, perhaps soaring high on one of the rides, take a second to look across the street. Sitting quietly along Shorefair Drive is one of the city’s most storied burial grounds: Odd Fellows Cemetery. Founded in 1911, the cemetery is viewed as one of the most significant black history sites in the city. Historians have estimated that there are about 10,000 people buried in Odd Fellows, many of them former slaves. While the cemetery fell into neglect in the latter half of the 20th century, a restoration group—The Odd Fellows Reclamation Project—has worked tirelessly to clean it up in recent years. Their hard work paid off in 2010, when a historic marker was unveiled at the cemetery.

The coordinates will lead you to the first stage of this multicache. There you will find the information you need to get to the final location on the outer edge of the cemetery.   Use the hints below to figure out the final coordinates.
