Description   EN   

Lafayette Square is one of three squares laid out in Joseph Elliott's original city plan. First known as Court House Park it was renamed in honor of General Lafayette, who visited the city in 1825. As the central square of the city it has been at the center of much of the local history. It has been the site of political and sports rallies and is the site of Soldiers and Sailors monument, remembering those who died in the Civil War. Today it is home to the summer concert series “Thursday at the Square” hosting a wide variety of musical artists.

I had to be in the area for a bit this evening so I stopped by and grabbed this one.

I figure it's about time I find a few of these bitcaches that are within walking distance of work. Plus I'm doing whatever I can to help OCUS reach their goal of 2000 finds before Saturday. Spotted this one before getting some lunch. This is definitely one of my top favorite parks/squares in the city. Thanks!

3435.  Had to wait for a train to pass thru, after finding the cache, before I could get back to my car.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

Only the 3rd finder, eh? Where the heck is Rayman who works 3 blocks down the street? I will start pestering people to find these things, I appreciiate all the hard work. By the way, they're making a Munzee App for WindowsPhone. I'm signed up, but it's not ready yet, or I could have gone on a downtown Munzee frenzy. That will have to wait.

I actually made a rather similar War Monument in Eastern Indiana a Virtaul Cache a few weeks ago. What makes that one so impressive, is that it's in a tiny City of 5,000 people. It was bankrolled by a rich local banker, as well as an Orphan's home in that City. Enough about that one though, thanks for placing this, I always kind of took the monument for granted, and this really made me check it out in detail like never before, including going up the steps to it.
