Meriwether County has launched its second geocaching trail – this time in the city of Manchester. Manchester, Georgia has a long history in the railroad history, in fact just about everywhere you look, you can find images of trains. Encouraged by LaGrange Industrialist Fuller Callaway, Manchester’s original train industry was the AB&A (Atlanta, Birmingham & Atlantic Railway), which chose Manchester for its strategic location. Tracks from Birmingham merged with tracks from Atlanta and together went south to the Atlantic Ocean. The line is now operated by CSX. Mr. Callaway also built a cotton mill in the city.
Today our Rail-Quest journey takes you through some of the historical rail sites as well as some of the city’s more contemporary points of interest. Fill your passport with rail cars, crossing signs and track images. You will be looking for 11 ammo cans and you will need to find, log and stamp your passport at all 11 geocaches in order to earn a free trackable travel tag unique to this Rail-Quest.
