Geocache Description:

An interesting site in Niles, IL. Easy to get to, parking nearby.

I thought this place would make for an interesting virtual cache for those who have not been here before.
 

The coordinates take you to a sign. To get credit for this cache email me the name of the person that is being honored.


Update! Sounds like the plaque is gone, so for now just giving the name of the large establishment near this location will work just fine until I can swing by and find something better to ask you! A few people wonder what the plaque said and who it was dedicated to, here you go: "A plaque at its base says it was built to honor the outstanding scientist Galileo Galilei, who dropped various objects from the top of the Pisa tower to prove his theory of gravity. " - Roadside America
