The Pike County Historical Society and Museum will be offering a special program geared for students looking to learn more about the history of Pike County and the exhibits in The Columns Museum. The program is open to 20 children between the ages of 11 and 14 and is free.
On Monday, February 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the museum will host a special program that will provide a guided tour of the museum and a history-themed scavenger hunt. Participants will learn about the famed Lincoln flag as well as the many other people, places, and things that make up the history of Pike County. A guided tour will be followed by a “scavenger hunt for history,” for which the students will be divided into teams and challenged to search for the answers to questions about the many exhibits and artifacts housed in the museum. The program concludes with a pizza party and birthday cake in honor of President Abraham Lincoln’s birthday.
