Geocache Description:

This cache was placed as part of a series, "Celebrating Irving: The City and The Man, April 2017", aimed to encourage the discovery of the city its history through geocaching. 

The Ruth Paine House Museum

Tours start at The Visitors Center on the third floor of the old Irving Central Library at 801 W. Irving Blvd. here in Irving. A special van takes you to visit the actual house.

The Ruth Paine House is where Lee Harvey Oswald, alleged assassin of John F. Kennedy, spent the night  November 22nd. His wife was renting a room there. The next day shots supposedly fired by Oswald rang out in Dallas at Dealey Plaza the next day claiming the life of President Kennedy.

In 2009 the City of Irving purchased the Ruth Paine House to preserve its historical integrity. In 2013, the city created a museum in the house so that visitors can glimpse back in time with the holographic displays within the house preserved to look much like it did in 1963.

You are looking for a Small Plastic Container, with room for a few tradeables. Please note: The container change from the original description. *** It is no longer a Micro, as originally planned. It's NOT Tethered. What you seek is in the bushes. Please replace as found.

Happy Hunting !!!
