Participants will pick up clues at the Old Train Station Museum at 1936 19th Ave. and follow them to a total of 10 historical locations.

"To the best of my knowledge, there has never been a scavenger hunt in Forest Grove," board co-chair Melody Haveluck said. "We want to educate people about our wonderful historic landmarks. We thought this would be a fun way to get the community involved."

Garden stakes will guide scavengers around town, and participants can join the hunt after 10 a.m.. At 3 p.m. there will be a drawing for gift cards to Pizza Schmizza and Biscuitology. The event is part of an ongoing celebration of Forest Grove's 150th birthday on Oct. 5.

"We are so ready for this sort of community involvement we've been missing. The farmers' market was packed this week. It feels good to come out of our shells and live again as a city," said Ashley Roth, who manages the museum. "Lots of different organizations around town are collaborating ahead of the 150th."COURTESY PHOTO: CITY OF FOREST GROVE - An electric street car ran through the city before 1911.
