Architecture Scavenger Hunt

Boswell, Indiana
The architecture scavenger hunt was developed as an alternative way to experience and “see” the existing town fabric of Boswell, Indiana. The small downtown area contains many vacant historic buildings that are in various stages of decline. Overall, the collection of buildings projects a sense of loss and abandonment. By searching for and finding the building details, participants are encouraged to see historic value and craftmanship in the existing building fabric.

This activity works best as a structured event with teams of participants. Ideally, a local guide would be included on each team who can provide historical insight into the past or historical use of the buildings.
