Cache Attributes

Kid Friendly Thorns Bring Your Own Pen Historic Site Letterbox Listed on OCUS Only 

Please see the attributes article for more information.

Description   EN   

The Brazos Bottom Baptist Church Cemetery was established in1867 and is listed as a Historic Texas Cemetery.  One of the residents, Judge John Gregg was born back in 1798.  At certain times of the year, you might see some horse racing/training going on across the fence line.  I was born and raised in Snook and never knew this place existed.  Please close the gate when you leave.

The letterbox has a stamp pad in it, so the first few stampers might find it to be a little juicy.  There is room for some small swag.  

In case you are not familiar with Letterboxes: 

  • Bring your own personal stamp (and stamp pad or marker)
  • Bring your own letterbox journal
  • Stamp your personal stamp in the cache log, sign and date it
  • Don't have a stamp? Use a marker and make a thumbprint. Make a drawing out of it.
  • Use the stamp in the cache to stamp your journal so you will have a record of your visit

    Congrats to flower71 for the FTF!

    So THIS is where Tunis is!  I've heard of "Snook/Tunis" for many, many years and finally found the Tunis area!  Nice cache here too.  Brought my letterboxing stuff and did some stamping before heading towards home for the evening.  Thanks for the cache and for bringing me here!

    Brenda, grizbeer and I spent some time walking around here after finding the cache. I loved this old cemetery very much. Did a lot of reading the head stones and enjoyed that a lot. TFTC! A late log is better than no log ah- tall!
