Hey look, there's two caches in that picture! I've been admiring Hillside Cemetery in Cambria, NY, located halfway up (or down) the Niagara Escarpment as a potential cache placement location for years. But I was really never interested in inviting 100 people a year to this rarely visited burial ground on With the low traffic associated with an OCUS cache, I became more interested in my idea, and with the advent of BITcaching, I finally pulled the trigger in August, 2011.

Hillside Cemetery has burials dating back to 1816, and the sign says plots are still available, and there are in fact recent burials there, including a touching one with toys all around it for a boy who died at age 7 in 2008. Here is a Nice record of the cemetery on a Genealogy website

You are looking for a BITcache, i.e. a Bound ID Tag, not too far into the "woods". More information is available at Also, there is an example of what a BITcache looks like below.

Enjoy your visit to this historical burial ground. No night caching, of course. And as someone who has been "watching" this cemetery for years, I can tell you there is absolutely NO WINTER MAINTENANCE whatsoever, and you would have to park on the side of the road (if you feel comfortable doing so) and tromp through the snow, if caching in the winter. And the Niagara Escarpment is one cold place in the winter.
