Geocache Description:

This one is in Browns Park, within easy walking distance from the Coke ovens, near Greystone. Easy access for passenger cars.

If you are into a little history this cache is for you. Take a drive into the old west and the Browns park area to the Coke ovens which were built in the early 1900's and used to smelt copper from a mine located about 8 miles from them. Once you get to the coke ovens fire up the GPS and head out you are within 600 feet of the cache when standing at the gate into the coke ovens. Check out the old dugout just south east of the ovens and be sure to wear sturdy foot wear and be cautious os snakes. Once you find the cache ( a light tan metal canister 7" dia by 12" high) inside you will find Casino token cup, waterproof matches, ear plugs, casino dice, match books, etc............................. Enjoy
