Placed with the kind permission of the management of Henry Horton Park on the grounds of their Inn and Restaurant. Henry Horton State Park was constructed in the 1960s on the estate of the former governor of Tennessee, Henry Horton. The park is located on the shores of the historic Duck River, one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. This cache is placed on the less "wild" side of the park where guests can find more civilized amenities, from picnic areas, game fields, swimming pool and sports courts, to the Park Inn and restaurant.
In 1825, citizens from Bedford, Lincoln, Giles, and Maury Counties petitioned the General Assembly of Tennessee to form a new county from portions of the four mentioned. These citizens argued that their respective courthouses were too far away for convenience. It was not, however, until February 20, 1836 that the Tennessee Legislature acted upon the petition. The new county took the name Marshall after the noted American jurist, John Marshall. Though communities were already established at Belfast, Chapel Hill, Farmington, and Cornersville, the town of Lewisburg was formed specifically to be the county seat.
The Jack Trail GeoTour
Placed with Tennessee State Parks permission.
The Jack Trail GeoTour is a series of geocaches along the backroads and small towns of Middle Tennessee. There is no fixed itinerary, like on a traditional trail, but rather a series of points of interest in a self-guided, goal-oriented plan. We have created a special passport, which you can download here, which lets you track your progress as you hunt specially placed geocaches along the tour. This passport will help you collect “code words” to qualify for special geocoins for completion of the GeoTour.
