Description   EN   

I first found this site several years ago while doing a couple of webcams and a flashmob in the area. I remembered watching the mini-series "Roots" while I was in high school. Our whole family watched every episode together. So visiting this site brought back some nice childhood memories.

For more information on the site please visit the website: http://www.alex-haley.com/kunta_kinte_alex_haley_memorial.htm

LOGGING REQUIREMENTS:  Visit the site in person.  Post a photo of your GPSr (and hopefully you) at the site and enter the Log Password. The log password in the fifth word in the second line of the plaque nearest and facing Mr. Haley.

There are several plaques in the area to read through. Please take some time to read them. There is also a very nice Compass Rose embedded in the sidewalk across the street.

Although there is no fee to visit the site. There are parking fees for the parking lot nearest the memorial.

Enjoy!

1 24 June 2015 mermaldad Found it

In town with a mission group. Generally I don't have time on these trips for a cache--gotta keep an eye on those youth--but we were taking a short walking tour that took us right past this one, so I grabbed it quick.  My GPSr is my camera, so I took a selfie instead of a picture of the device.

Thank you for establishing this cache!

1 06 February 2013 cycleangela Found it

After being release from jury duty this morning, I took advantage of the nice day and walked over from the circuit court. I've been here in the past to get the webcam as well. I was by myself, and didn't have a self-time camera with me, so I hope the pictures I post are OK. If not, just let me know! Thanks for the cache!

1 11 August 2012 DudleyGrunt Found it

3517. Goal for this weekend is to clear out the 7 unfound OCNA caches within a hundred miles of home. Started with cycleangela's Dylan to the Rescue and moved onto Tilghman Island Drawbridge. That'll leave just angela's Off to the Races moving cache and 3 OBXgeek caches in Fredericksburg.

Been here before, for the webcam and the WWFM flash mob (all in one), but this is a great memorial. I also remember watching Roots, when I was a child.

I was alone and didn't want to do the typical arm-stretch photo, so I set it up with a self-timer, but some folks ended walking between me and the camera. You can still seem me and part of the memorial, though. Ah, well.

Thanks and Happy Trails!
