Play Historic Preservation Scavenger Hunt

May 16, 2013
South of the main road and central circle you will find the fourth mausoleum, a fine example of medieval-type architecture. The rustic stones and engaged columns that are part of the door suggest an early European church or monastery. Who is in this lovely building? We hope you have enjoyed your search this week and that you were distracted by the beautiful architecture at Elm Grove! Two more weeks of wandering ahead.

Welcome to the 2013 Historica Preservation Scavenger Hunt. The City of Washington’s Historic Preservation Commission hopes you will help the commissioners celebrate for the next four weeks. All of the answers to the clues can be found in the two local cemeteries. Please take care as you wander in search of markers and mausoleums.

More detailed guidelines and an entry blank may be found in the Monday, May 13, Journal. Photos and clues are published Monday through Thursday for four weeks.
