Everyone knows that Lancaster is rich with history, but now you can get a little richer by knowing some Lancaster history. Adam Zurn, creator of Uncharted Lancaster — the local history-based adventure website — and Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County have teamed up to create an epic six-week-long Secret Trust Adventure with a grand prize valued at more than $3,000.
How to Play
This exclusive adventure is available only to members of the Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County.

Members receive a decoder paper with how to organize the GPS coordinates, a location poem to help further zero in on the location, and a claim code riddle.
How it Works
Each week on Saturday at 7 am, the next clue and location to explore will be revealed. Adventurers will need to visit a series of historic and architecturally significant Lancaster County locations as they solve puzzles or complete the tasks to reveal a portion of the treasure’s GPS coordinates.
Those able to complete the quest unlock the resting place of a cache that redeems for the coin-laded treasure chest.
Its finders keepers for the first person to finish this treasure hunt. However, keep in mind that the treasure is hidden in such a way that only official participants will be able to find and claim it—so be sure to purchase your Trust membership.
