First Annual Historic Scavenger Hunt
The City of Johnson City and the Historic Zoning Commission (HZC) are encouraging citizens to get to know the historic resources in our community. To recognize May as Historic Preservation Month, the HZC has organized a downtown scavenger hunt! Fifteen architectural elements are pictured in a brochure, and participants are tasked with identifying the building on which those elements can be found. Each survey that correctly identifies all 15 buildings will be placed in a drawing for two free passes to Hands On! Regional Museum and two free meals from Buffalo Street Downtown Deli.
Brochures can be found here
, the Johnson City Public Library or at the Municipal and Safety Building’s Codes Enforcement lobby (back side of building), 601 E. Main St. Participants may return the completed brochures may to the lobby or by scanning and emailing to email@example.com
. Deadline is May 31st. For more information on the scavenger hunt or the HZC, please contact Planner Jessica Harmon at (423) 434-6073.
