First Kindergarten This box was created for the WI 10th Anniversary Gathering.  The theme of the gathering was "Wisconsin Firsts".  Being a teacher, I decided to create a box commemorating the first kindergarten in the US being formed right here in Watertown, WI.  You can read some of the history here.

The school building which held the first kindergarten was restored and moved to a certain location in Watertown, WI.  Go to this
location and find the outhouse.  From the outhouse, walk downhill 51 steps.  Look to your left for the group of 5.  Stand on the downhill side of this group and walk 15 steps at 65 degrees.  Look for the box between two fallen branches covered by forest debris.  Please replace accordingly.

If you want to tour the buildings on the location, you need to pay at the visitor center.  Keep in mind that the "authorities" on site are not aware of this letterbox.

Before you set out read the waiver of responsibility and disclaimer.
