Carlisle Quest: Goal 4
Carlisle Quest: Goal 4 Approx. 1.5 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 monument in Veteran’s Park erected in 1940 by the DAR. In October 1753 somebody headed a commission; remember his last name.
Go west from the square until you come to a cross street with a hospital sign. Go the direct opposite of the sign’s arrow.
Continue walking over railroad tracks.
Continue walking past a very large empty lot on your right.
Turn west at the intersection where you find a (small) jeweler.
Turn south at the street with the name you found on the monument at the square and proceed.
At the corner of this street and one named for a past President, you will find a large building on your left.
What you seek will be within 20 paces of “1926”.
