A new family event offered to explore region’s history, culture
Everyone loves a treasure hunt. And starting in June, Warren County-based First Wilderness Heritage Corridor has plans to bring you a county-wide treasure hunt that will take you to some of the coolest and most historic sites in Warren County!
The hunt will take the form of a growing hobby known as “letterboxing,” which incorporates orienteering, art and puzzle solving to find hidden treasures and complete a challenge. The goal is to find specified sites in the First Wilderness towns using clues in the form of a riddle.
Two kickoff events for the challenge will be held on Saturday, June 5th, one at The Kinnear Museum in Lake Luzerne and another at Martin’s Tree Farm and Sawmill in Thurman.
The new challenge was developed by Warren County Planning & Community Development, which oversees First Wilderness Heritage Corridor. The First Wilderness Heritage Corridor unites communities along the Upper Hudson River in celebrating their shared history along the earliest route into the heart of the Adirondack Mountains.
This new letterboxing challenge will help local residents learn more about the region’s unique characteristics and history while also having fun!
