Zelienople Historical Soceity

We are sponsoring a historic-themed Treasure Hunt on Sat. Oct. 14th from 9-3 during the Zelienople Country Fall Festival. Pick up a list of clues on the side porch of the Passavant House at 243 S. Main St. any time after 9:00 AM. Follow the clues and pick up a letter at each designated merchant's business. After you have collected all the letters, unscramble them to figure out the historically related word. Drop off your entry at the side porch of The Passavant House by 3:00 PM. Ten winning entries will be drawn at 3:00 PM, and prizes donated by local merchants will be awarded. Good luck and have fun playing!
