Carlisle Quest:  Goal 8

Carlisle Quest:  Goal 8                                                                       Approx. 1.4 miles

 

Start: Veteran’s Park (SW 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 name represents. 

 

James Warden

David Kutz

Richard Lilly

Josh McCoy

 

Go east and turn Josh McCoy at the second traffic light.  Do not count traffic lights on the “square”.

 

Continue walking until the street dead-ends.  Turn David Kutz and walk until you see a bridge – cross it.

 

On the other side you will find a road – turn left and follow it until it dead-ends on another road.  Turn right.  You are headed east at this point.

 

Walk until you reach an intersection with a traffic light – turn Josh McCoy and continue.

 

Turn David Kutz* at the second street (not driveway) and keep walking.  You will be informed of the current price of gas by a sign on your right. 

 

Keep walking – you will pass construction on your right and the road will curve left.  Across from a lot of former citizens, you will find the parking lot of the place that contains what you are looking for.

 

You are looking for number forty-four.
