Peabody Park Letterboxes
These boxes are missing and may stay retired.
Letterboxes of Antiquity Homepage
Originally placed by Girl Scout Troop 322.
#2 has been damaged and Letterbox #1 has been reported missing has been
damaged as of Nov. 2003. I am in the process of replacing them and
adding more! Update coming in I will post when both boxes are back in
place again. Please keep me informed of any further damage to boxes.
Start at the entrance to Peabody Park in Appleton. This will be the entrance down by the river.
Start walking west down the concrete path. After you go under the
bridge you will see a vertical wood beam on the right hand side of the
path. Turn left and walk 29 paces to a tree.
Look for a pair of trees that make arches. Turn in the direction
of the arches and follow your feet to a grandpa (old) tree.
Turn west and walk up the hill. Look for a graveyard of stone.
Find a backwards "L" laying on the ground. Look for the center of the
"L" rock and have a ball!!
Go back to the concrete path and follow it until it splits into a
circle. Follow the path to the north (right). Look for a tree with a
hole in the bottom, past the manhole cover.
Turn west. Walk 60 paces. You will see a tree that looks like a "V". Turn south and walk 40 paces.
You should be on a trail. Follow this trail till you see a wooden
fence. Follow along the fence to the right 33 paces. You will see a
fallen tree going over a small stream. Where the fallen tree touches
the bank look for a rock jutting out of the embankment. CAREFULLY have
a seat and take a rest. Take a deep breath in, exhale and look between
your legs. There you go!
Please replace both boxes in their original spots with the sticks
and leaves in front of them to keep them hidden. Thank you. Girl Scout
Troop 322 had fun making and hiding these boxes. We hope you have fun
