Adam Zurn, history buff, pop culture enthusiast and creator of Uncharted Lancaster — the
local history-based website that features do-it-yourself outdoor scavenger hunt-style adventure games — would surely appreciate if you imagined this next sentence being delivered in the voice of an epic blockbuster movie trailer narrator. This April, prepare for the ultimate epic Easter egg hunt!
How to Play
Playing is simple. Purchase your treasure map from the Trust and check Uncharted Lancaster’s website every Saturday at 7 am beginning April 9, 2022, for that week’s challenge. Next, solve the riddles and decipher the clues to unlock segments of the treasure’s GPS coordinates each week. Participants will be unable to claim my Easter egg until the final weekly clue is released on Saturday, May 7, 2022, at 7 am in this first-to-find winner takes all game of skill.
Find a treasure. Preserve a treasure.
When you purchase a copy of the map, you also get a year’s membership in the Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County. Profits from this year’s treasure hunt are being used to kick start the Trust’s digital archiving project. This ambitious undertaking involves scanning their 160,000 artifact collection, including many one-kind items that highlight Lancaster County’s rich architectural heritage. The project is expected to cost upwards of $200,000. So while you are busy trying to find my treasure, you are helping the Trust preserve theirs.
Purchase your treasure map today for a shot to claim your fortune and glory! The treasure hunt begins Saturday, April 9, 2022.
Good luck…and happy gunting!
