BDstarcachers: Although I received approval by the township trustees to keep this cache here, I have had a change of heart. The curator of the Historical Society that moved into this building has a distinct disapproval of the cache being here. It is Christmas time and I just felt that it is time to just archive this cache. Happy Holidays to everyone!

Geocache Description:

A special thanks to the Hinckley Township Trustees for approving the placement of this cache. The Trustees and the Hinckley Police know it is here. Do not let anyone tell you it has been removed. Be assured it is there and available to find with full approval!

This micro cache is placed by the old Hinckley Library. The actual library was moved recently to a larger location. The old library is believed to be haunted. There was an actual Ghost Cam set up in the building awhile back but is no longer operating. The Hinckley Historical Society has since moved in.

- This old Hinckley Library was built in 1845 and belonged to Vernon Stouffer of the Stouffer food company. It became a public library in 1973 and stories of the place being haunted became well-known. The ghosts of a man and woman were seen on the stairs, a workman encountered a figure in the basement and others have felt and seen strange things like objects moving about on their own and various apparitions. The ghosts are believed to be those of Dr. Nelson Wilcox and his sister Rebecca, who lived in a cabin at the site before the house was built.

This should be a fairly easy find. This is “D”s first attempt at hosting a cache. Please bring your own pencil or pen. There is no room for trade items, only pennies.

Please be courteous of the surroundings, there is no need to dig or move anything.
Please keep everything undisturbed. Please put the cache back exactly as you found it.
Thank you and good luck!
