The Harrison County Historical Society is presenting a unique twist on your typical Easter egg hunt.

From April 10-April 17, join the hunt at eight locations in Harrison County. All of the historical society sponsored eggs will be filled with candy and local history trivia. One location will have a golden egg with a Toys “R” Us gift card. The locations include the Stealey-Goff-Vance House, Clarksburg City Park, Veterans Memorial Park, Shinnston City Park, Bridgeport City Park, Watters Smith Park, Salem Depot Park, and Oliverio Park in Stonewood. On April 12 from 10:00 to noon, the Vance House will be open for children to search for eggs and explore the artifacts in the museum.

“This event is a great opportunity to present history in a fresh way,” said Executive Director, Crystal Wimer. “We also hope this event brings out lots of people to our historic house and our fantastic community parks.”

All of the historical society’s eggs will be clearly identified by a white sticker seal. If you find one of our eggs, we want our participants to take a photo and use the hashtag #HCWVHSEggHunt on their social media.
