Geocache Description:

Park at N43 24.873 W087 52.182

Walking along the old Interurban trail, I ran into a an old man shaking his head. The old man was wearing tattered clothes and muttering to himself "It's a darn shame, a darn shame." I had to ask "What's wrong Mister?" The old man said "Once was a town here, a bustling little town called Knellsville." he said pronouncing the "K" when he said Knellsville. The old man continued "Oh about 1974, those darn highway people built an expressway here. Bulldozed almost the entire town. Nuthin left now, but an old school and the remains of the old factory." The old man shook his head again, then he brightened up. "They left an old time capsule here though, one of them Tupperware thangs y'know. Nuthin' spensive in it, but little things y'know? I just don't remember whar they put it. They left some clues, but I just can't remember how to use them. Some kind of crazy number and letter combination." The old man scratched his head and sighed "I wunner where it is?"
