Carlisle Quest: Goal 3
Carlisle Quest: Goal 3 Approx. 1.1 miles
Start: Veteran’s Park (corner of High and Hanover St, Carlisle)
The major streets of Carlisle are laid out north-south and east-west. For example, the square in Carlisle consists of Hanover St., running north-south, and High St., running east-west.
Walking directions will sometimes be given in cardinal directions (e.g. turn east) so it is important that you maintain a directional “sense” throughout your walk. Otherwise, you could become lost. Proceed at your own peril.
There is a Civil War memorial in Veteran’s Park to those Cumberland County soldiers who fell in the “Great Rebellion”. Look up the names of the following soldiers – each is on a different tablet that refers to a compass direction. Remember what direction each represents.
From the square, go Rueben Line until the cross street is Levi Rupp; turn Daniel Stum and proceed.
Walk until you come to an intersection with “225” on steel. Turn right and walk up the street like a cracker.
Go to the first stop sign, turn left, and keep walking.
You will come to a (often) busy road. Carefully cross it and bear right. You will see a high brick wall on your left. Go through the “people passage” following the walkway.
You will find what you seek on the backside.
