***3/20/2006 This box has been pulled temporarily due to construction in the area. I will replant when things have cleared up in the area.***
This letterbox is the second in a series commemorating the history of Northern Colorado, and will take you to various outdoor historical sites
Windsor, Colorado has a history for its farming and it‘s railway. Farmers would use the rail to send goods near and far, helping keep this small community up and running. Currently, the museum located at the park in this search has an exhibit titled “Rails to Windsor” displaying photos and effects from Windsor’s railroad history.
1. Halfway between Fort Collins and Greeley is where you will find this town.
2. Along Main Street travel to the street that has something in common with the State of Connecticut, President James Monroe, and a basketball team. Turn north.
3. Follow this street into the parking lot for the park and Windsor Lake.
4. Find the historic 1882 Colorado and Southern Railroad Depot at Pioneer Village. From here head east past the “Summer Kitchen” to the “Country Store”.
5. Heading south from his location you will pass the “White Hall School” before reaching your goal.
6. Just beneath the evergreens under the wooden sign on the “German Prayer House” you will find “The Locomotion”.
Please attempt to hide the box better than you found it as this location can draw many people that may not appreciate letterboxing the way that you an I do.
Also, since this is a public place, please be discreet. There are many picnic tables and places to sit nearby where you can stamp in. Leave a message in the journal if you wish.
If you want, please let me know when you find the box and it‘s condition.
After you are done, check out the museum and other historical buildings in this area or feel free to walk around the lake.
