WCCSI held the 6th annual Architectural Scavenger hunt for their September program. Six teams solved clues and raced to collect photos at the Salisbury Mansion, WPI’s Boynton Hall, American Antiquarian, Worcester Art Museum and Tuckerman Hall before returning to the start for a presentation by Steve VanDyke on the Salisbury family, their connection to each building and their impact on Worcester.
Congratulations to Cpt. Tom Bull and Lt. Jeff Dubeau, “Team Repeat” for defending their title as Scavenger Hunt Champions, correctly photographing all 5 destinations and solving the connection of the Salisbury family.
Steve Lewis and Rob Gutmann of team “Speed Racer” came in a close second, followed by “Fenestration Then and Now”, “Mike2”, “Quaranteam” and “Evil-Minded Architects”.
Special thanks to Paul Levenson of the Massachusetts Symphony Orchestra for opening Tuckerman Hall and to Robert Stacy of Worcester Historical Museum for opening the Salisbury Mansion for team photos. Mark your calendars for September 2021 for the 7th annual scavenger hunt.
