Description   EN   

Depending on how you look at history Sam Davis was either a hero or a traitor. The one thing that can be said about him was that he stuck up for what he believed in and stood by his friends and brothers to the death. Take a little time to stroll through his family's farm and see what life was like about 150 years ago and a bit about what made Sam Davis the man he was.

This cache was placed with the permission of Anita Teague the Sam Davis' Home's Executive Director and with the approval of the Board of Directors of the Sam Davis Memorial Association. She requests that we respect the property and only hunt this cache during normal business hours. If the gates are closed the cache is unavailable. Also all of the parking is at the end of the drive to the left of the old home all of the way in the back.
