Carson City Hosts 11th Annual Scavenger Hunt in Historic District
May is Historic Preservation and Archaeological Awareness month. The Carson City Historic Resource Commission is pleased to host the 11th Annual Scavenger Hunt.
This is a family-friendly activity that sends participants on a quest through Carson City’s historic west side. Pack some water, lace–up your walking shoes and prepare for lustrous greenery, this year’s hunt features 25 locations in the Historic District. The community is encouraged to practice social distancing while exploring and experiencing Carson City’s Historic District.
This year’s challenge requires participants to locate fences and gates provided in the clues. Fences and gates, while varied in material and construction, are important landscape features that often serve as an extension of the architecture of the house. These features tie the building and landscape together while enhancing privacy, establishing property boundaries, and protecting children and pets. The District offers a variety of fences and gates that reflect the time period of the houses they surround.
