3rd Annual Hunt for History Event

Post Date:05/11/2017 10:16 AM

In celebration of National Preservation Month, the City of Redmond Historic Landmark Commission is excited to announce the return of ‘This Place Matters’ photo contest and the ‘Hunt for History’ mystery event. ‘Hunt for History’ is a self-guided walking/biking tour from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 13. To take part, pick up tour maps and clue booklets at Centennial Park, then venture out on bike, foot or car to the designated buildings. Read historic plaques and learn about the history of each building, the colorful characters who toiled there and architectural trends during the time they were built.

Prize drawings for the history tours will be held at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. If you would like to be entered for the drawing, return completed clue booklets to Centennial Park before the drawings. The first three adult and children booklets drawn at each time showing the correct answers will win prizes. Allow about 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete the history tours depending on your pace and if you are walking or biking.
