New Tag!

You'll find this tag across the road from a nice Public Golf Course. It's also not to far away from the previous tag.

White Clay Creek State Park entrance on Thompson Station Road opposite the Deerfield Golf and Tennis Club.

This time I did take it south:



Completed in 1785, the small brick structure in the back there is one of the smallest Friends Meeting houses in the country. Two prominent members of its congregation, John Alston and John Hunn, served as agents on the Underground Railroad, and the building itself is purported to have housed runaway slaves on their way north.

The new tag

Here's the new tag

This palatial home, constructed 1916-1918, was the home of a Dupont and General Motors executive.

Here is a better view of the building.

Good grab, cyclejohn! I was starting to worry that it was too obscure.

Edit -- just noticed the toy buck on the historical marker -- your mascot?

That's Bucky, a geocaching travel bug. About Bucky: "Bucky belongs to Mr. Bell's first period, fifth grade social studies class at Mitchell Elementary in Bryan, TX. We are studying American history. We would like to read about and see pictures of the places Bucky visits." I got Bucky from a geocache in Delaware, and have been taking and photographing him at numerous historical places in PA, Delaware, and NJ. Bucky has been to Valley Forge, Penn's Landing, Independence Hall, Betsey Ross House,etc. It seemed very appropriate to take him to the sites of with historical markers.
It's a unique way for the 5th graders to learn American history. I have tried to include additional info or web links in each of Bucky's visits. Here's more info about his travels: http://www.geocaching.com/track/deta...6-43d21abf5773

I walked back to the Meeting House for a closer inspection. That is one really small building. Thanks for bringing me to this location

Very cool. I'm glad I could play a role in one of Bucky's stops!

Thanks to all for future spots to visit

Good day:

Not a "player" at the moment as I do not currently own a motorcycle but am determined to get one soon and would like to thank all of you for showing these spots and giving me some inspiration for future destinations.

Ride Safe.

How's about another hint on this one. I either knew where all the others were or found them relatively easily. I'll be damned if I can find where this one is and haven't seen it before unless the back section has a huge garden out back and have only seen it from that angle.

The tag is no longer a private residence. It is now part of the campus of a private college prep school. Famous former students include Thomas Capano(class of 1967), and our current vice president(class of 1961).

There is a roadside state historical marker about 15' from where I stood taking the photo.
You should be able to find it now!

I'll have to go into Jersey and get the next round of the tag. I already have the spot picked out:

According to the rules, you posted first, so it's all yours. I appreciate the offer, though.

What ADV pose? I meant that, and it was directed at you! Nah, good grab, Will.
Edit: someone should say where it was: the Patio at Archmere, now Archmere Academy, Philadelphia Pike in Claymont. I read somewhere while I was Googling for this that you can rent this house for wedding receptions and the like. Saw some pictures of the interior and it's pretty amazing.

Edit: linky

Good job by both you guys (Will LC8 and olenuf2nobetter). I was heading back to PA,and stopped when I saw the Historical Marker. I too saw interior wedding photos on a web site. The word palatial seems like a very accurate description.

Looks like we might have some nice weather this weekend. I'm anxiously awaiting the new tag.
