More than 100 participants hit the streets of Buckhead recently for the third annual Buckhead’s Hidden Secrets: A History Scavenger Hunt.
To kick off the event, which is presented by the Buckhead Heritage Society and was chaired this year by Barbara Bazzel, Penny Hart and Belle Turner Lynch, contestants gathered at the Atlanta International School for hors d’oeuvres and drinks. Then, teams of guests competed against each other to solve clues, seek out historic locations and take photos related to the community’s vibrant past. Each successfully resolved clue was worth points, and the teams with the most points took home prizes. The teams led by Ann Stuart Pearce and Claudia Gill narrowly won. After the hunt, participants returned to the school for a delicious buffet from Lovies barbecue and J. Christopher’s. The $31,700 raised from the event benefits the Buckhead Heritage Society’s mission to identify, preserve and promote the area’s historic resources.[nggallery id=78]
