Geocache Description:


Welcome to the USA Geoart! The caches are obviously not at the posted coordinates, but they are all located along Route 3 in NH and Route 102 in Vermont. They are all relatively simple finds because I want everyone to be able to find these caches, regardless of age or physical ability. But to find these caches, you must solve the following questions about each state’s symbols. The website I used to gather the information was https://statesymbolsusa.org, so please use the same website to avoid any discrepancies.

In each cache, there is a special little surprise for the FTF if they want it, a little homemade magnet of each state. Will you be the first to collect all fifty?

I also need to give a huge shout out to my Mom, Mummie91957, for helping me immensely with this geoart series. Without her, this geoart would’ve taken much longer to plan out. 

Rhode Island joined the union on May 29, 1790.  It is the smallest of the states measuring about 48 miles long and 37 miles wide. Rhode Island was founded by Roger Williams in 1636, who had been banished from the Massachusetts colony for his advocacy of religious tolerance and the separation of church and state. During the colonial period, Newport was a major hub for shipping and trade. In the 19th century, Rhode Island was on the front line of the Industrial Revolution with the establishment of power-driven textile mills.
