Description   EN   

This was originally going to be deployed as "Where's Dudley?  At the Beauty Salon".  However, but by the time I got around to placing it, the Dudley Beauty Salon had changed it's name.  Don't understand why, though.  It's been sitting in my glove box long enough, so I decided to put it out here.  This may explain the Log Password.

“On the 2,623 acres of land purchased in 1935 where President Roosevelt’s first planned green town was to be constructed, three old family cemeteries were known to exist. These cemeteries belonged to the Hamilton, Turner and Walker Families. Remains from other burials and family cemeteries were uncovered when the land was cleared for construction, and these were relocated to the most accessible cemetery, that of the Turner Family. When a construction worker died whose family was unknown, he was buried there and so were a few residents during Greenbelt’s early years of existence. These are the origins of the Greenbelt Cemetery.

“The Turners came to this site in 1759, when Shadrick Turner purchased a 125 acre farm known as ‘Wild Cat.’

“Shadrick Turner was a devout Methodist. He and Bishop Francis Asbury are honored today as the principal founders of the First United Methodist Church of Hyattsville, one of the oldest Methodist churches in America.

“The Turners occupied the farm until 1935 when it was sold to the Federal Government. The cemetery was deeded to the City of Greenbelt in 1941.”

This is a BIT Cache, so you will be looking for a small placard with a Log Password on it. You will need to record the password, in order to be able to log the cache as found.  Photos are appreciated, but not a requirement.

You will find a Diamond Munzee next to it and there is a Sighter location nearby.

1 30 March 2014 sfcchaz Found it

Laughing FTF Laughing at 10:20 AM. #3 of 9 geobased finds today in 7 different types of games. My main goal was to grab a geodash point before it disappears on April 1, 2014. SO I decided to make this a mainly alternate caching day. I found 1 OCUS geocache, 1 GeoPoker card (also hid it), 2 traditional Terracaches, 1 locationless Terracache, 1 Geodash point, 1 GeoVexilla flag, 2 Groundspeak geocaches. TFTC
