We're at the final Green Box of 2021! We didn't want everyone to hold off searching for other boxes...so we kept this prize on the low low. The box finder will receive a $10,000 Christopher Designs pendant with chain crafted in 18k white gold with 1.67ct of SI2 clarity and G Color natural diamonds. Christopher Designs is based out of New York and invented a revolutionary method of cutting diamonds. His method has more facets and create a larger looking diamond. Our Christopher pieces are only in-store, so you'll have to come in to see them. We will release a clue every day until the box is found, but if you stop by the store and take a look at a piece of Christopher Designs, you’ll get a clue a day in advance. Best of luck to everyone!
***UPDATE :: This BOX has been found!***
#1 Clue, Friday Dec. 17th :: The ace that finds this box will likely trust the aces ahead of them.
When one makes it to the bridge, the tree that holds the box near the edge of the bridge. The person will have crossed the bridge or most like walk out on it. The large lags that are holding the bridge together have “Ace Marine” visibly written on every lag. The person doesn't necessarily have to walk on the bridge to find the box, thus we used the word “likely” to be accurate.
#2 Clue, Saturday Dec. 18th :: Nearby was one who may have been kept against their will.
Identified in Hitchcock woods was an early 20th century mansion that was a replica of the Henry Wadsworth Longfellow House in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Hitchcocks bought this house and tore it down in the late 1920s. Before they did, it was occupied by a mysterious woman who was known as Baroness Adele Von Loesecke (this may not have been her real name); a recluse who claimed, at one point, that her butler was holding her hostage in the house.
#3 Clue, Sunday Dec. 19th :: Not far from that which was once enjoyed by boat, but can be no longer.
Situated in what is now Hitchcock Woods was once a body of water known as Kalmia Lake. Several years ago, some local history buffs contacted the Aiken County Historical Museum about a brochure promoting Aiken that was published in 1889. The brochure included a picture of what was called “Kalmia Lake,” which was advertised as “recreation and amusement for all.” A pavilion had been built on the South side of the Lake as a center for the boating and picnicking which were the main activities during the day,” Teague wrote of Lake Kalmia. Today, the former lake and pond is now a winding creek of storm runoff no more than a few inches deep, it can no longer be used for boating. It connects with the other small bodies of water in Hitchcock Woods that, eventually, all lead to the Savannah River.
#4 Clue, Monday Dec. 20th :: If you happen to see nine red letters, you'll need to look to the right and upward.
Below the bridge is Sand River, there's a single sign on the bridge over Sand River that says "QUICKSAND" in red letters. One wouldn't see this sign unless they had ventured off the path. Of course the box isn't in Sand River it's only about 3ft off the trail at the edge of the bridge.
#5 Clue, Tuesday Dec. 21st :: A mystery solved inadvertently.
In 2004, two students were hunting in Hitchcock Woods for a Geocache. They reached into an area and found a human skull. Using the dental records they matched the person up with a missing person from 12 years prior.
#6 Clue, Wednesday Dec. 22nd :: Though right beside sawn timber, this box can be found on live timber.
This clue is designed to help the finder quickly located the box once they are in the right area.
