Merrimack County Savings Bank (The Merrimack) is helping the New Hampshire Historical Society celebrate their 200th anniversary with a statewide scavenger hunt! The Merrimack is a proud sponsor of the 603 History Hunt, which encourages Granite Staters to explore the state through a series of challenges throughout the month of July.
“The 603 History Hunt is a fun opportunity to educate the public on our state history through a series of challenges,” said Elizabeth Dubrulle, Director of Education and Public Programs at the New Hampshire Historical Society. “Each challenge has a point value with prizes awarded at the end, based on the number of points earned.”
The 603 History Hunt can be completed from just about anywhere in the state or within a specific region. Using the Scavify app, players will earn points based on challenges that involve tasks, such as answering trivia questions, recording videos, taking photographs, or scanning QR codes.
“We’re excited support such a fun initiative that will bring friends and family together and out in the community,” said Linda Lorden, President of The Merrimack. “This event not only highlights all our great state has to offer, but is a unique way to celebrate the New Hampshire Historical Society’s bicentennial anniversary.”
Founded in 1823, the New Hampshire Historical Society is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to saving, preserving, and sharing New Hampshire history. Nowhere will you find a more extensive collection of objects and archives related to New Hampshire’s history. The Society shares these vast collections through their library, museum, websites, publications, exhibitions, and youth and adult educational programs. The Society is not a state‑funded agency. All programs and services are made possible by membership dues and contributions.
