The Venango County Historical Society will sponsor a history hunt, one designed to match an item with a descriptive history, from 6 to 8 p.m. today.
“We have taken objects from our collection – some are obscure and others are well known – and laid them out,” said Marlie Manning, executive director of the Historical Society. “There are questions that relate to each of the objects and you are to answer them and then match them up to the items.”
The event, open to the public, will be held at the society’s headquarters in the Egbert-Mullins-Koos House at 307 South Park St. in Franklin.
“We have redemption stamps from older grocery stores. We have calling cards, advertising pieces, china. They range from just a few years ago to 100 years ago,” Manning said.
At the conclusion of the self-guided hunt, Historical Society volunteers will compare the answers to the objects. Prizes will be awarded to the winners.
The program is open to all ages.
“We had our first history hunt last year and it was popular,” said Manning. “This is something different and something fun.”
