Precious Mettle

Difficulty: ????
Part of the SummerGame2015 Game

We have a tendency to think about explorers as people dedicated to knowledge, seeking to expand our understanding of the world. Or we think of them as vainglorious men looking to get their names in the history books with a great big "FIRST". But most of the exploration of the world that has occurred has served a different purpose: money. This badge's explorer is a prime example of this. Let's test your mettle by having you figure out who he is by finding where he landed. This landing place (or the place we believe to be his landing place) is a Historic and Archaeological District given the National Register of Historic Places number 12001006. Find the name of the place, then find the name of the man it is named for in the catalog!
