Geocache Description:

The posted coordinates are offset, although actual cache is within walking distance. This mystery cache requires finding 5 different sites within the Union Cemetery (So. Carver, MA), capturing the appropriate numbers from the monuments, and calculating the final cache coordinates.

Please exhibit respectful behavior while walking the grounds. This portion of the Savery Historic district, located near the Union Church, is open dawn to dusk only. The historic Union Church is a prime example of Gothic architecture. It was built in 1855 and originally opened in the summer only. The Union Church was closed entirely between 1861 - 1864 as a result of the civil war.
