Scavenge The Rock

Uncover Castle Rock’s story

It’s about the journey, not the destination. Discover the history behind Castle Rock and the journey our community has taken with Scavenge the Rock. In celebration of Historic Preservation Month, uncover the stories that have helped shape our Town and participate in a scavenger hunt that will be fun for the entire family.

In partnership with the Castle Rock Museum, Downtown Merchants Association, Historic Preservation Board and Town, this scavenger hunt is designed to help participants learn about the history of our Town.

Here’s how to play along:

Between Saturday, May 1 and Friday, June 4 pick up a clue sheet at the Castle Rock Museum, 420 Elbert St.

You have all month to complete as many of the tasks on the sheet as possible to earn points.

Return the sheet to the Castle Rock Museum by June 4, 2021 to receive a gift and be entered into a drawing to win prizes including gift certificates to Red Hawk Golf Course, Season passes for the summer concert series and gift cards to many local businesses.

The drawing will be held at the Castle Rock Museum on June 5, 2021 at 1:00pm.  You need not be present to win.
