Scavenger hunt highlights Historic Preservation Month
Published on May 04, 2021
Lakewood’s Historic Preservation Commission invites all residents to join a self-guided scavenger hunt virtually or in person during May to search for unique architectural elements and historic structures found at Heritage Lakewood Belmar Park. Participants who submit their completed scavenger hunt form will be entered to win a prize!
May is Historic Preservation Month, and the commission, in partnership with Heritage Lakewood Belmar Park, created this engaging scavenger hunt to highlight Lakewood’s local history.
Download and print the scavenger hunt guide or complete the online scavenger hunt form on the city’s website. The guide can also be picked up at the Visitor Center in Heritage Lakewood, 801 S. Yarrow St., on Fridays and Saturdays in May between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Completed forms can be dropped off at the Visitor Center during these times as well.
Prize winners will be announced and answers to the scavenger hunt will be posted online after June 1. Learn more about the city’s preservation program and historic resources at Lakewood.org/HistoricPreservation.
Historic Preservation Month is recognized annually by cities, states and preservation organizations across the country to instill national and community pride, promote heritage tourism and highlight the social and economic benefits of historic preservation.
