The Historic Detail Hunt is Gossips' observance of National Preservation Month. Every day during the month of May, Gossips published the photograph of an architectural detail found on a building in Hudson. The challenge is to locate the details, identify each one by the address of the building on which it is found, and submit your answers electronically to Gossips. Click here for a downloadable list of all thirty-one details.
- The first person (or team) to submit a list--identifying all thirty-one details correctly--wins a $50 gift certificate from the Red Dot.
- The next three people (or teams) to identify all the details correctly will receive a gift certificate from Look, Olde Hudson, or Park Falafel & Pizza.
- Everyone else who submits their answers before midnight on Friday and identifies at least sixteen of the thirty-one details correctly will receive "consolation cookies" from Trixie's Oven.
Is it possible to find thirty-one architectural details in less than sixty hours in a city with an area of about two square miles? It's worth a try. Obviously, time is of the essence. The big prizes go to the people who get their answers in first, but consolation cookies are within everyone's grasp.
