Geocache Description:

You are seeking Nevada State Historical Markers.

This reverse virtual cache is intended to get Nevadans and visitors out to some of the historic site in the Silver State. To claim this "FIND" :
Go to a Nevada State Historical Marker, you've seen them everywhere.
Post a photo of the marker, preferably so the information on the marker can be read.
Post the number of the marker, in case it can't be read in the photo.
Post the coordinates and a description of the location.

The coordinates listed are for Nevada Historical Marker Number 188, courtesy of Dr. Webe's Oops 1873 - Oops 1974 (GC9498). While this is Nevada marker, it is in California. You will have to go there for the rest of the story. Please don't post enough information about this marker to give away Dr. Webe's virtual cache.

Please only one "FIND" per marker and one "FIND" per geocacher. If you post more than one marker please do it as a note. Conversely if you want to post a marker already posted as a "FIND" please do it as a note. This improves our chances of getting a readable photo and gives everyone a chance at a "FIND."

I prefer physical caches, but saw this as a way to get cachers out to interesting places without environmental damage. If you see an appropriate spot for a physical cache in the vicinity of a historical marker, please place one.

As of 11/19/2005 there are 92 logs on this cache. Only 52 of them are "finds." As of today these are the markers logged as "finds;" 1 3 4 17 20 25 26 30 33 35 44 49 56 60 62 70 79 81 98 101 102 104 115 130 131 139 142 148 150 152 156 165 168 169 172 188 189 191 197 201 205 214 218 221 224 227 230 234 246 247 248 250 256 259.
