A Fun and Educational Hunt for History -with Abe Lincoln - Offered by Historical Society and Museum
Although our Museum has limited hours due to the ongoing effects of covid-19, the Pike County Historical Society is pleased to announce a fun filled and educational way to engage in the history of our area. A scavenger hunt which will encompass the village of Milford, the grounds of Grey Towers, Milford Cemetery and Firefly Park in Matamoras will be offered, with questions and riddles to be answered by visiting these sites. The hunt can be completed at your leisure, with a deadline for all answer sheets, and a few pictures, to be submitted by December 17th, 2020 – either by email or in person.
The entry fee for this event is $25 and includes your very own Lincoln Bobble Head doll – which is key to the contest – as the hunt requires pictures of Lincoln at various locations within the hunt.
All entries submitted by the deadline, with all questions and tasks completed correctly, will qualify for a grand prize raffle with first place being a private tour of our collections and dinner for 4 served in the Lincoln Room of the Museum - on a date of your choice. Second place is two Columns “Artifact” t-shirts. And third place is 4 passes to the museum, good for one year.
Everyone who participates is a winner – not only for wanting to further your knowledge of Pike County History – but you get to keep the Lincoln Bobble Head as a memento of your participation and as a thank you for your support of P.C.H.S.
To reserve and pickup your Abraham Lincoln Bobble Head – available now – and your list of tasks and questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange pickup; or stop in the museum any Wednesday beginning October 11th, between 1-4pm , to register in person.
The winners will be announced and notified on December 18th, 2020 via our Facebook page – The Columns Museum. Good luck!
