664. Fredonia, Wilson County (KS081)

I don’t even know where to begin with this. This would have been pretty hip in the early 1960s? Maybe they brought in Mike Brady to consult on this? Your guess is as good as mine. I certainly don’t know what to say about it. I’m not 100% sure a courthouse has ever rendered me speechless before. If it hasn’t happened yet, well, I guess it may have happened here. This saddens me.

There’s always a cemetery. My first attempt at a find was an LPC that had disappeared, so I took a side road off a side road to find this one. A micro in a tree is hardly original, but this one was vaguely interesting because the owner put clues to the location in poem form in the description. I spent a little more time than I would have liked searching for James and Ruby and Henry, but they led me to my quarry, so I’ll take it. That said, this should have been an Unknown, not a Traditional, so I’m not endorsing the use of poetry as a redirector in this case. Overall, I had to rate this county as a severe disappointment. My Yelp review would not be flattering. Then again, that’s the beauty of county caching: there’s always an undiscovered country over the horizon, a new county to see and experience. I drove over that horizon, hoping to have a better find in…
