Description   EN   

In 1844 sixty-three whaling ships called Sag Harbor home port. In that year one of the Village's most iconic structures was built. Designed by architect Minard Lafever, it combines elements of both the Egyptian Revival and Greek Revival styles. Sometimes called the "Old Whalers" Church, it was originally topped by a 185-foot steeple, which came crashing to the ground in the hurricane of 1938. Find this cache on the church grounds.

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE: the cache is not hidden in the ivy that runs along the right side of the property (as you face the front of the building). Please stay out of this ivy as there is often also POISON IVY along with the ornamental ground cover.

This is one of six caches placed as part of the John Jermain Memorial Library's Sag Harbor Culture and History Geocache Hunt. Each cache is located near a site of cultural or historic significance  to Sag Harbor. Inside each cache is a rubber stamp and stamp pad (or self-inking stamp). Pick up a log sheet at the John Jermain Memorial library (201 Main Street, across from the Whaling Museum), and use the stamp to record your find. (There's also a traditional logbook in the cache for your use.) Be sure to return the stamp and pad to the cache when you're done. When you've logged all six library geocaches, bring your completely stamped log sheet to the library and receive a certificate of completion.
