About This Cartridge
A timeless journey through historical Laurel Hollow Zoo. Announced in 1905 and left mostly untouched since 1912 'til 2009. Somewhat newly rediscovered and being restored as a picturesque modern day park. Offering a storybook hike through an enchanting Appalachian wilderness filled with seemingly ancient towering trees and whimsical vines. Wildlife is abundant throughout this amazingly preserved little secret of WV. Once again, becoming the pride of the community. A place not easily forgotten that you will look forward to sharing with others.
I hope this Wherigo cartridge spurs the imagination for a timeless quest of this parks unique story. Note that this wilderness park sits exactly in the center of the town of Newell, WV , 26050.
Information Kiosk at the park's western entrance along Rt2, Newell, WV 26050
Ample parking is available nearby.

Very well done. I often stay away from these because I've had a lot of trouble with cartridges in the past, but this one worked great. Thanks.

This one was one of my favorite wherigos we have done. We would have missed this park as we passed through and the history lesson was interesting too.

Found this one with the green ranger. We had already found all of the caches in this nice little park and loved getting the chance to come back and learn even more history. We saw a few muggles but no wildlife while on our adventure. This one had an awesome ending!! Very creative!! Nice job!! Took lots of pictures!! SL TNLN TFTWherigo!! Favorite point awarded!!
