Had a little extra time during a short visit, and headed over here for some history after a nice walk in a park as the sun was heading down. [green]Thanks, DudleyGrunt, for setting this up!

I've been wanting to do this cache for a while, and finally got the chance to come by this morning before attending an event. This was my first time at the museum, thanks for bringing me here!

Can't believe someone didn't get this one earlier.  I think most floks in the Laurel Area know where it is.  Went for the late lunch grab and got FTF.
