The Westchester Township History Museum’s 6 th annual History Hunt is going high—tech with geocache clues! The History Hunt will take place throughout Chesterton and Porter on Saturday, September 23 from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m., within the boundaries of US 20, Mineral Springs Road, IN 49, and 1050 N. All participants must begin the hunt at the Westchester Township History Museum before 3 p.m. and must have a GPS device or app to solve puzzles to get to the next location. Registration is not required to participate.

Learn about some of the many historical sites in both towns and solve puzzles to find your next coordinates. The hunt will cover about 4 miles, so walk, ride, or drive your way through area history. It's fun for the whole family! Those who complete the hunt will earn a yummy reward.

Westchester Township History Museum is located in the Brown Mansion at 700 W. Porter Ave., Chesterton. The museum is an educational and cultural service of Westchester Public Library, and is open to the public free of charge Wednesday-Sunday from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m., or by appointment.
