A Ring of Spies

A Ring of Spies

The Culper Spy Ring began after Nathan Hale was caught and hanged by the British because he was caught carrying secret information hidden in his shoe.

Drive to the Hale Homestead on South Street in Coventry and park in the lot near the house.  Follow the road into the woods, past the field on the left where the Farmers’ Market is held each Sunday from June – October, past the barn won by the Farmers’ Market in 2011. Continue on the road until you come to the first driveway on the right which leads into the corn maze held here in the fall.   Stop at this driveway and turn left. Walk into the woods, straight back until you see, slightly to your left, an oak tree and a yellow birch tree growing together in front of a large boulder.   Between these trees you will find: Ring of Spies. Please rehide carefully.

Bring the clues to The Culper Ring with you and learn more about the spy ring set up after Nathan Hale was hanged as you find these letterboxes.
