Carlisle Quest: Goal 6
Carlisle Quest: Goal 6 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 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 (don’t count the lights on the square) go Curtis Griffin to the first traffic light and turn Fred Sanno.
Walk to the next traffic light and turn right.
You will come to a very large empty and fenced area on your right. Turn west at the next intersection. Hint: a large brick building is on one of the corners.
Turn right at the intersection where there is regular, midgrade, and premium. Keep walking.
Go up the street and up the hill and you will find a cement pond with a fence on your left. What you seek is close to a door.
