Georgie B. Gates Pardee

By Patrick Kavanagh

 

As a dedication and lasting honor to her parents, Mrs. Pardee petitioned to have the area then known as Chapin Place (Chapin Place was named in honor of Col. Edward Chapin, who belonged to the 116th Infantry, and was killed at Port Hudson in 1863, during the Civil War), changed to Gates Circle.

 

In return for this name change, Mrs. Pardee offered to pay for the fountain and layout of the circle. E.B. Green designed the layout of Gates Circle. His design incorporated the ornate light standards and fountain from the Pan American Exposition which was held in Buffalo in 1901.

 

The GAR adamantly objected to this proposal; however, Mrs. Pardee won out and since 1903, this circle has been known as Gates Circle, as Mrs. Pardee wished.

How embarrasing. Two of the four logged seekers are OCNA admins. Yell

It's gone though. Even though I'm the first logged person to look for it since 2012, you can still see where it used to be. There's a Munzee (of the small, barcode only sticker variety) on the same sign. On the bright side, I did NOT have to dodge traffic, as Delaware was closed for a 5K race. I suppose you could say I had to dodge runners though.

The coords were putting IN the fountain. Mist was nice and I'm sure the locals were wondering what I was doing, but I din't really want to attract that much attention. Did search around the circle, but didn't find anything. Well, that'll be something for me to, the next time I'm up.

This is one circle I have driven through but like the rest never knew any thing about it. Parked on a side street and took a walk around. Found my first Munzee and of course had trouble scanning it. After the 5th attempt I got it. I know I like the BIT caches better as they bring you to an interesting spot. Thank you,,SF7
