Have You Found Your State's Oldest Cache?

So after reading someone's log this morning that they saved their double zero finds (200 - 900) for the oldest cache in a given state and their 1000th for the one that started geocaching, I got to thinking. First, this sounds like the kind of goal I would enjoy setting, so I decided to do so. For each of my double zero finds (whenever those happen), I'm going to use the oldest cache in each state (whichever I decide to hit) to be that mark with the one in Oregon being my 1000th.

 

But then I got to wondering how many other people here have found the oldest caches. Who all has found the oldest cache in your state?

 

Here's the one in mine, Mississippi, which was placed back in 2000:

 

Bonita Lake

 

EDIT: I just realized I likely should have posted this elsewhere on the forums. So yeah, I'm sorry if so. Do these usually get moved on there own or do I have to ask someone?

If you look at my profile you will see that I actively search for the first cache placed in each state. I don't however save them for milestone finds.

 

You will have problems finding the first cache placed in Oregon as it is no longer available. There is a tribute plaque placed at the site that is kinda the mecca of caching however.

I've always thought it's a cool thing to find the oldest. I found the one in SC several years ago. After thinking about it again more recently, I added Alabama and have now targeted my nearby states (just in case I happen to be in that area).
