Scavenger Hunt Winners from the Secret Philadelphia Treasure Hunt

On Saturday, June 8, author Mary Dixon Lebeau hosted the first ever Secret Philadelphia Treasure Hunt at the American Treasure Tour in Oaks, PA. The staff of this unique nostalgic museum wrote clues leading to Philly-related items in their collection, and teams of participants searched through the Tour’s extensive inventory and took selfies of themselves with the designated items.

Members of the Four Seasons – a group of former employees of the Roxborough YMCA who now meet quarterly for some fun – was the first team to check in with a complete set of pictures. Congratulations!

Mary was on hand to talk about Secret Philly, sign some books and check everyone’s pictures. (And she even sneaked away to take the last tram ride of the day!) Two teams were verified as finding all twenty items on the tour – way to go!

The team of Nikki and Jeremy were the second to finish. Great job! They even found Grace Kelly (though they were too young to remember her!).

Thanks to the American Treasure Tour and the terrific staff there for hosting Mary and this event. And if you haven’t visited the American Treasure Tour, what are you waiting for? It’s like the magic of your childhood attic, coupled with the wonders of your parents’ childhood attic, with a little of your own kids’ childhood closets thrown in. Want to hear more?
