****This box has become MIA****

Very sad to say, But I went to check on it today(10/11/06) and found it missing. I will recarve the stamp, but will obviously have to place it somewhere not quite so public. (I have to admit, I'm really disappointed!)

This letterbox will take about 20 minutes, and is stroller friendly. Please be aware that the box is hidden in a relatively public area, so be cautious when removing and rehiding.

This is the second in the Our Favorite Books series. Wild Rose's favorite is the Laura Ingalls Wilder book, "On the Banks of Plum Creek". More are soon to come!

From Willimantic, take Rt. 289 toward Lebanon. (Rt. 207 from Colchester or Norwich)

Just before the Lebanon town green, take a right onto West Town St. about a half mile down, you will see the Governor Jonathan Trumbull Revolutionary War Office (a small red building) on the right. Park in front of this historic museum. Directly in front of the museum, you will see the equally historic Lebanon Town Green; one of the largest undeveloped greens in New England. Walk across the street to the green, finding the well stoned walking path. Turn on the path SSE walking past trees and the Trumbull House museum on the right. Near the end of the path, you will see a section of split rail fence bordering a parking lot. Walk to the second post, and take a reading of 120 degrees and take 27 paces to the line of arborvitaes planted on the edge of the parking lot. From here you should see a row of parking signs. Go to the second one in, and looking beneath the arborvitaes just to the right of the sign. There may be some mulch partially covering the box, so look carefully.

Stamp and rehide cautiously.

I have my favorite book coming up shortly, but am interested if any regulars would like to email me their favorite children's books? (or feel free to add your own to the series...I'm a sharing kinda lady!)
