Geocache Description:

This cache series would not be possible without the enthusiastic and supportive help of the staff at the Denver Public Library. Be sure to visit the other geocaches in this series and collect the special code at each final for future surprises. A bookmark of the other caches in this series can be found  below:

This Blair-Caldwell Library opened in 2003, it is the only African-American Research Library in the Western Region. It honors both Omar D. Blair, a World War II Tuskegee Airman and Elvin R. Caldwell, Denver's first African-American City Councilman.

Begin your search at the posted coordinates. Head up to the 2nd floor.

At the South end is a Timeline.   Look for the following answers here. (This will be a reference number)


A=  The last number that appears in all the Big Black Bold numbers on the Timeline.

C = The last number in the year that James Meredith enrolled at the University of Mississippi
       With a Troop Escort.

D = The last number  in the year of the Desegregation Drive in Birmingham

Now head to the 3rd Floor of the Museum, enter the portal at the North End and look at the Mural.

Who were the Earliest Explorers that arrived in this Region? (This will give you the location)
