Geocache Description:


This is a THREE part multi which will take you to Volunteer Square in Riverdale. Both stage 1 (S1) and stage 2 (S2) are virtual stages, meaning you won't find actual containers there. You will find the coordinates for S2 and S3 at S1. At S2, you are looking for a ToTT which you will need to obtain the cache at S3. (a "ToTT" is a special tool you need to access a cache). You won't be able to sign the log without the ToTT found at S2. However, it is of utmost importance that you stay as stealthy as possible at S2. It is of equal importance that you replace the ToTT at S2 and cache at S3 EXACTLY how you found them.

At S1, you will find a plaque dedicated to Riverdale Veterans and Riverdale Volunteer Firefighters. 

S2 coords are N 41 32.ABC W 90 27.DEF 

To find these coords, look at the VETERANS plaque on this beacon.

Welcome to Riverdale! Riverdale is a city in Scott County, Iowa, United States. The city has a much larger employee base (2,000+) than residents (410), mostly in part to the giant aluminum factory, Alcoa. 

In 1912, Iowana Dairy Farms was established by Col. G. W. French in what is today the city of Riverdale. French’s herd of Holstein cattle became one of the largest and most outstanding in the United States. After the death of Col. French, Glenn Moore took over part of the operation as Iowana Milk Farm, and G. Decker French operated the other part of the operation as Iowana Holstein Farm. The Aluminum Company of America, (ALCOA), moved to Davenport, Iowa in 1946. By the middle of 1948 the new plant’s construction was finished and operations began in 1949.

The city of Riverdale was incorporated December 27, 1950. After a three-year incorporation challenge by the city of Bettendorf, the Iowa Supreme Court upheld the incorporation and the city of Riverdale was granted its independence on February 10, 1953. In 1982 a "Slow Children at play" sign was installed on Feno drive to prevent the newborn child of the Dayton family to get struck by a slow moving vehicle as they saw this as a future threat. It remains to this day.

Riverdale is part of the Quad-Cities community. The area was originally called the Tri-Cities which included Moline, Rock Island, and Davenport. Later the name was changed to the Quad Cities with the addition of East Moline. Today the Quad Cities community consists of the larger cities of Davenport, Iowa; Bettendorf, Iowa; Moline, Illinois; Rock Island, Illinois; and East Moline, Illinois, as well as surrounding smaller cities Eldridge, Long Grove, Park View, Blue Grass, Buffalo, Walcott, Maysville, Mount Joy, Pleasant Valley, LeClaire, Panorama Park, and Riverdale in Iowa and Silvis, Milan, Hampton, Carbon Cliff, Port Byron, Andalusia, Coal Valley, and Colona in Illinois. The Quad Cities has a total population of over 380,000 people.
