Sarah was a cryptologist for the CIA. One night, as she was getting ready to leave for the day, her supervisor rushed in and handed her and her team a single sheet of paper.
"We've got less than three hours until this goes down. I need you to decode this ASAP!"
Her division had been monitoring a potential major arms deal for some time, waiting for tips as to when and where it would take place.
The note read:
MEET @ 9:00 PM TONIGHT

But where? The division knew of many different locations this interaction might go down at. The arms dealers often referred to different locations using code names. The division had noticed that all these names were things or places on a farm.
Where did the CIA need to be at 9:00 PM that night?
Line two gives a year that leads to the cipher used in line three
Hint 2 Revised
The line, "THE CLUE AND THE KEY A MONOLITHIC TRANSLATION," as deciphered by @Stiv, refers to both a specific cipher and the key to be used in the cipher. "MONOLITHIC TRANSLATION" is a synonym for the cipher, while it describes the key, which has already been mentioned below. The cipher is very common and simple, and is present on many generic lists of types of ciphers.
