History: Burlington History Hunt

The past comes alive this month as Burlingtonians of all ages hit the streets for the city's first-ever History Hunt. Sponsored by Preservation Burlington, the scavenger hunt contest presents competitors with photos of architectural elements from buildings throughout the city, and tasks them with correctly matching the images with an address or common name. "We want people, kids and their parents, to get out there and appreciate the architecture around our city," says Rebecca Reese, a Preservation Burlington board member and UVM grad student. "We're educating them, but in a fun way." Families can complete the hunt at their leisure anytime between October 1 and November 10, but if a crisp, informative walk on a fall day isn't enough of an incentive, here's more motivation: One lucky winner gets a new iPad.

History Hunt: Contest packets are available for download at preservationburlington.org; hard copies may be picked up at the Burlington Planning Department at Burlington City Hall or at Wanamaker Restoration.
