The letterbox was placed on 8-26-02 by Salamander.

The general area where this letterbox is located offers a beautiful view of the city and the Paint Creek and Scioto River valleys. It is also the final resting place of four of Ohio's governors: Thomas Worthington, Duncan McArthur, Edward Tiffin, and William Allen.

Clues:Go to Grandview Cemetery
Begin by finding a large, square, stone-walled enclosure. From this enclosure's northwest corner, go 43 paces (1 pace=2 steps) at 7 degrees. You should be standing at the top of a set of stone steps. At the westernmost edge of the bottom step,take a bearing of 338 degrees and go 21 paces. Are you standing beside a large stump? If you were to look inside this stump, you would find what you are seeking (please check to make sure that no wild critters are calling the place home; none were when the box was placed).
