Special thanks goes to Lady Slpa and Welllington for creating this box as a Christmas gift to me- their carving disabled friend who loves to find other handcarved stamps, but hasn't quite got the knack for carving her own!!

Find your way to the Madison/Cornville townline marker on Route 43. This is the only such marker in Cornville. Slowly and carefully head east (by car) across the line into Cornville. You will slowly drive through a sometimes dangerous intersection. Right after the intersection you will see a small brook where many fishermen stop on quiet summer evenings. Slow down. On the right hand side of the road is a pullout with a large birch tree blocking a path. Pull over here. The box is hidden at the base of the fallen birch covered by bark.

Please do not continue down the path as this is private property. The fishermen often park here to get off the road safely as Route 43 is a very busy road with lots of log trucks and construction vehicles. Safe journey to all and maybe you'll catch a glimpse of the many busy beavers that inhabit the area.
