Historical society organizing scavenger hunt

The Mahoning Valley Historical Society is organizing “The Amazing History Race: Mahoning Valley,” described as part scavenger hunt, part road trip.

Individuals and teams will have the knowledge of local history tested as they pick up a set of clues at the Tyler History Center, 325 W. Federal St., Youngstown, that will lead them to six landmark sites in the Mahoning Valley. A “lifeline” will be available for teams that get stumped along the way. Teams will need a smartphone or digital camera to record their landmarks.

A pizza party with soft drinks will be at the finish line. Participants may bring other drinks. On-site registration begins at 5 p.m. June 23, and the race begins at 5:30 p.m. The cost is $5 per person. To register in advance or for more information, call 330-743-2589.
