A wonderful Geocache!

Most of you know, by now, that my wife and I love Geocaching.  We’ve never been “numbers” cachers…we prefer caches that are a little more remote, out of the way, and take us somewhere interesting to see.

We were in St Paul Indiana to do a restaurant review, and spotted some historic cemetery caches  (our very favorite) in the area, and decided to grab a few of them.

This is the Dutch Chapel Schoolhouse cache in Decatur County, Indiana.  The schoolhouse was in service from the mid 1800’s through 1920 or so.  Although the building is long gone, the pump is still there, as well as a few bricks from the original school.

As you can see, this is a pretty remote part of Indiana.

Countryside

Although the schoolhouse is long gone, the adjacent Church still stands, and still hosts a (small) congregation.

Church front

As you can see from the above picture, there’s a VERY well maintained cemetery behind the Church, with graves dating from the early 1800’s to the present.

It’s a great cache.  For those interested, the cache ID is GC574NV
