Nicholas and Nicola Bell, with their baby Poppy, were the first people to complete a new quest that links Crown Point, NY with Chimney Point, VT. The British family followed clues on a Quest Map and answered seven riddles to obtain the quest’s treasure: a commemorative coin.
The Bridge Quest was developed through a partnership among the Champlain Valley National Heritage Partnership (CVNHP), Chimney Point State Historic Site, Crown Point State Historic Site, Lake Champlain Visitors Center, and the Crown Point State Campground.
The Quest Maps are available at the Lake Champlain Visitors Center, or at the two state historic sites.
Questers may also download the maps from the CVNHP website. At a leisurely pace, the quest takes about three hours to complete. Once complete, questers can get their commemorative coin at the Lake Champlain Visitors Center, which sits at the western end of the Lake Champlain Bridge.
