On a trip to Madera to find a few benchmarks and we found this terrific example of an old triangulation station - the Old Madera Courthouse - known to the N.G.S. as GU3368. We decided to place a cache nearby so others could see this wonderful piece of history.
While you're there, look for the near perfect example of an original U.S.G.S. elevation station on the northerly corner of the building, originally monumented in 1901 - known to the N.G.S. as GU1072. If you have time, be sure to visit the museum too.
This is a log-only, 35mm film canister so please bring your own pencil or pen to sign the log.
Please hide the cache as well as and in the same place you found it.
Enjoy your visit to the Old Courthouse Park!
