The 28th annual Heimatfest kicks off in Jordan today, and the Scott County Historical Society is sponsoring a history scavenger hunt in conjunction with this weekend’s festivities.

Pick up your scavenger hunt clues at the Scott County Historical Society or at the Jordan city hall, and then use the clues to take a photo of yourself at each history site to be entered into a prize drawing. Photos may be submitted through 11 p.m. Sunday and all photos become the property of the SCHS.

For more information contact the historical society at (952) 445-0378, email, or visit
