Haiku Cache No.2-Orangetown Historical Museum
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Check out the Orangtown Historical Museum at the Salyer House and then creep into the woods behind it for the cache.
Here's my 2nd attempt at hiding a cache. The first one is just down the road, so have a go at it too. Park in the gravel area on the left. Going straight will only lead you to a circle driveway.
Cache is a clear plastic Sunkist pistachio jar with a white lid hidden in the woods between the Blue Hill golf course (you'll see all the golf balls) and the museum. From the cache site, you should be able to see the reservoir (Lake Tappan) especially in the fall and winter seasons. Explore right behind the museum for some old mill stones, or sit and picnic. A tribute to a fallen trooper is there too. The museum is open on Sundays from 1pm-4pm and Tuesdays from 9am-2pm.
Be careful of the soft dirt and erosion so please tread lightly.
Origial contents of cache:
Two highlighter pens
US flag pin
Lint remover brush
Please log your visit, read the haiku and leave a haiku of your own (perhaps inspired by caching). Also, please rehide well as beer cans and firepits are strewn about.
