4th Grade Hawk Box

The 4th Grade Hawk Box is located in Old Town San Diego. This was the Fourth Grade's last field trip together. We had fun placing it.

Clue: Exit from I-8 to Taylor Street. Travel on Taylor St. as it heads west then curves around the Presido heading south toward Old Town. You will pass a baseball field on the left. Continue and try to find parking anywhere on the next two streets. Juan St. or Congress St. Congress St. turns into San Diego Avenue which you can also find parking. Enjoy wandering and looking around all day in this great place. There are many things to see, places to eat, and shopping opportunities of everything you could imagine.

The letterbox you will find is located on the grounds of the haunted Whaley House. When we placed the box, strange things happened just as we were told by the Docent. Once you find the Whaley House, you need to locate the wagon wheel in Anna Whaley's garden. Once you find the wagon wheel you are steps away. The letterbox is located just East of the fifth level from the street (cause we will be in the fifth grade next year!) of the white cement wall that surrounds the Whaley House in a bush at the base of a large tree and post of building. Enjoy, please seek and hide well, there could be lots of people at times around!

Box reported missing as of 8/15/04.

NOTE: Good news As of 4/04/05! Since this is location is under constant surveillance it will disappear often so I have decided to replace the stamp via email only. I will send to you a scanned image of the hawk for you to download upon request. Let me know what format works for you...jpeg...pdf...etc.
