How does this work?
Caches are placed to hold postcards. Every postcard will have a small message and an address on it. The address will contain the person’s name that you are trying to send the card to, a city and most likely a cache. The objective is to move postcards between Geo-Post Offices until they reach their desired location. When you move a postcard or message from one place to another, please let the person who it’s being sent to know where you moved it to because they might be close enough to pick it up. If you move a postcard from one Geo-Post Office to another please move it closer to the city or cache!
A CASTLE IN THE MIDWEST?
Originally built by the Knights of Pythias as an Orphanage in 1913.
The property was sold to the United States Government in 1942 during World War II as only a few people were residing there,and they were placed in private institutions.
It became a part of O'Reilly General Hospital and remained as such until the Hospital was deactivated.
It was used for a number of years by the Army Reserve.
It is now in private ownership.

The building is a large and imposing,castle-like structure constructed of cut limestone blocks.
Thank-you to Tamara Finocchiaro, the owner of this magnificant piece of Springfield History, who granted me permission to place this cache.
If there is a wedding taking place when you arrive to find this cache please respect the privacy of this group & search for this cache at another time. Other than weddings this cache is available at all times.
