Waco History Scavenger Hunt

Join Waco History on a family-friendly scavenger hunt! You’ll learn more about the founding and how Waco grew throughout the 19th century.

About this event

This family-friendly scavenger hunt traces Waco’s early years. Starting from the Waco Farmer’s Market at 500 Washington Ave anytime between 8:30 am and 10 a.m., individuals or teams will travel around Waco to learn about the city’s early history.

Download the free Waco History app to decipher each clue, follow the information to the historical locations, and complete interactive missions as you explore Waco’s founding in chronological order. To play, you’ll be asked to answer prompts via QR codes and upload pictures to the social media platform of your choice — either Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram — using the hashtag #WacoHistoryHunt.

At the end, three lucky teams will win prizes from local businesses for most points, most creative, and most historical insight. We’ll also be giving door prizes out throughout the event.

Please purchase one ticket per team and give the contact information of the person who will be posting to social media during the scavenger hunt. Your team can range from 1-8 members.
