Windsor Then & Now Scavenger Hunt

August 1 - August 22



Think you know a few things about Windsor’s history?  Ok.  Got your detective hat on?  Good!  Because Friday, August 1 and Saturday, August 2 mark to the first days to start racing for the “Windsor Then and Now Scavenger Hunt”.  Pick up your booklet at the Windsor Historical Society between 10am and 4pm on Friday or Saturday.  Booklets will include clues and historic images that will leave you guessing and searching for over 20 spots around Windsor.  Teams will have a few weeks to complete the booklet.  At each spot the team members are required to collect a stamp, sticker or take a photograph with their team to be placed in the book.  Books are due back to the Historical Society no later than August 22 at 4pm but teams are encouraged to hand in the book as soon as completed.  The first teams to successfully hand in a completed book with the correct answers will have the opportunity to ride on the Windsor Historical Society’s Parade Float for the September 27th Town Parade.  In addition to the book, other helpful hints are located within the “Windsor Then and Now: A Photo History, 1890 – 2008” exhibition located at the Windsor Historical Society on Palisado Avenue.  Both young and young at heart will have a blast discovering Windsor’s fascinating history.  Do you think you know the answers?  Put your Windsor History to the test!
