History On Deck #2: Patrick Eagan
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Very busy place. Need to work on your stealth capabilities.
The Ace of Spades in the History On Deck playing cards is that of Patrick Eagan. Born in Tipperary, Ireland in 1811, Eagan came to the US and arrived in this area in 1853. He staked a claim of 220 acres in what would become a city with his namesake. This namesake cache is hidden on his former land.
Mr. Eagan became the first chairman of the town board of supervisors and was elected chairman six times. Some of the present-day site is known as Patrick Eagan Park and is a segment of the Eagan Core Greenway, an effort to preserve and protect open areas from future development.
There are items in the cache that are appropriate for the present-day land use. There is a special surprise inside for the FTF.
