The Ewing Township Historic Preservation Society invites Township students and their parents to participate their first annual Ewing Historic House Hunt on Sunday, June 11, 2017 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 are invited to participate based on the local history curriculum that is presented during these school years.

Participants are encouraged to pre-register to have a longer period of time to search for houses in the Township on June 11th.  Check-in and onsite registration will be from 1:30-2:00 pm. 

We plan to have students and parents answer questions about 18 historic sites in the township as they drive around the township. Upon their return to the Benjamin Temple House they will be encouraged to find items in a few geo-caches in the Drake Park that surrounds the house. We will also be offering tours of the house and refreshments.

Prizes will be awarded to those students who correctly answer the most questions.
