The Susquehanna River Valley Heritage Alliance, a collaborative effort of museums and historical societies, is offering a Passport Program from May 1st through August 16th to stimulate interest in local history among area students. The "passport" will list participating organizations, incentives, and opportunities to learn about area history. For example, at the Slifer House, families may sign out 19th century lawn games to learn more about entertainment of that era. At the Buggy Museum, students participate in a scavenger hunt of historic objects while on tour in the buildings. At the participating United States Post Offices, students can learn about the art within the buildings and its significance.
Participants, accompanied by an adult, will have their "passport" stamped when they visit each of the participating sites. Passports with a minimum of five stamps can be submitted to any of the sites (except the Post Offices) and entered into a drawing for an overnight, history-themed getaway to Gettysburg which will include tours of the Civil War Museum and Cyclorama. A parent or guardian must submit the passport on behalf of those students under age 18.
The 2016 Time Traveler's Passport Program offers twelve heritage sites in the Susquehanna River Valley where you are guaranteed to learn something about our region's history! Passports are available at the participating sites listed below and can also be downloaded using the following link: 2016 Passport Download
