This the third of a series of various types of caches, centered around the the City of Laurel Walking Tour (CLWT).  The walking tour highlights various historic sites in the city and was launched in 2006 as a cooperative effort between the City of Laurel and the Laurel Museum

 Laurel Historical Society

Site 2 - Laurel Cotton Mill and Dam

From the CLWT brochure and marker - Nicholas Snowden built a grist mill on this site in 1811, using water from the Patuxent River to poer the mill.  In 1824, the building was converted into a cotton mill.  Snowden's son-in-law, Horace Capron, enlarged the mill in 1836 to produce canvas duck for Baltimore clipper ship sails and Conestoga wagon covers.  The mill burned in 1855 and rebuilt in 1856 with automatic sprinklers.  The mill was the largest employer in Laurel in the late 19th century.  The remnants of the mill, dam and millrace can be seen on the Riverfront Park Trail.

Laurel Dam

This will be a fairly short six stage mult-cache.  All but the final will be along a paved or wooden walkway.  Technichally, you can visit the preliminary waypoints / stages in any order, but my listed order will probably result in the least distance and less back tracking. 

The final is in a wooded area at N 39 06.ABC W 76 51.XYZ.

Stage 1 - Laurel Factory: Prince George's County's Only Mill Town - At the listed coordinates, find the clipping from the "Baltimore American".  It is dated June 2_, 1855.  The missing digit = Z.

Stage 2 - Laurel Cotton Mill and Dam -  The Site 2 marker.  The main body of the plaque is made up of 9 lines of text.  Which line ends in the word "MILL"?  Line # = C.

Stage 3 - Laurel Harnessed the River to Power the Cotton Mill (I) - Find the width of the dam.  The sum of the digits = A.

Stage 4 - Water From the Dam Powered the Cotton Mill - Number of buttons on George Nye's coat - Y.

Stage 5 - Laurel Harnessed the River to Power the Cotton Mill (II) - One paragraph starts with, "According to newspaper reports in 185_..."  The missing digit = X.  Water powered how many overshot wheels?  This number minus one = B.

Stage 6 - The final!

Stopped by today and found the cache - mostly in good shape.  Log wa slightly damp and I was showing myself about 70 feeet off.  I'll make some addtional visits in the near future and see if it was an anomoly or if I need to update them.  The first 2 finders didn't seem to have any trouble, so hopefully, it was just poor reception today.

Adding a clue, though.

[I had actually done the full multi today and ended up entering the coords wrong.  If you solve for them correctly, you should be good.]

I still had time for a couple more caches before it got "too" hot outside. What a nice history lesson. As always, the dog was impatient while I was gathering the information, but she survived. Thanks for the cache!

Smile FTF Smile 10:54 AM. I was in the area today to seek several of the news ones that have built up over the past couple of weeks. I've found a lot of caches in this general area over the years and look forward to more to come. This was a very nicely set up cache and if you're not careful, you may learn something. Wink TNLN TFTC
