7 August 2010 Geocaching Sends Us to the Poorhouse
...okay not truly, but we did visit one. Poet Will Carleton was inspired to write his moving poem about the plight of a widow who has nowhere turn but the poorhouse as she gets older. Hmmmmm... maybe there's a lesson in there for our modern social security naysayers. The county historical society was hosting a fund raising event on the grounds. We stopped and walked a bit before moving on to a nearby park for some serious caching. The main remaining building is a cobblestone building. This was the first I had seen a cobblestone building outside the Niagara Falls area. The sorting tray for sizing cobblestones was quite interesting.
