Local History Scavenger Hunt

Sunday, January 31, 2021
All Locations

Do you think you know your Kenton County history? Then test your knowledge and participate in our local history scavenger hunt! Starting, January 2nd, 2021 a scavenger hunt form will be available for pick up at the drive-thru and circulation desk at all three branches. The scavenger hunt form will have photographs of places important to the history of Kenton County. Write down where or what is in the image and return your completed form to the branch by February 1st, 2021. At the end of the scavenger hunt, a winner will be chosen to receive a local inspired gift basket. 

Places on the form may no longer be standing or may only show a unique feature of a building. Find help by searching our online historical photograph database Faces and Places @ www.kentonlibrary.org/genphotos.

The Local History Scavenger Hunt form is available here for you to print from home.
