TELL CITY - Violet Patterson of Tell City was the lucky winner in last week's second round of a historical treasure hunt sponsored by the Tell City Sesquicentennial Committee.

Answers to clues published in last Thursday's News were Rubens Street and Mayor Theodore Kiefer. Kiefer's third term made him the city's 11th mayor. Thus the wooden token was located at Rubens and 11th streets, taped to a tree at the location of the former Gnau Dairy. The city maintains a garage there.

Patterson won a $75 gift certificate from Urban Imports and a sesquicentennial stein and coaster set.

Round 3 of the historical treasure hunt begins today, with Fischer's Furniture and Appliance and The News as this week's sponsors. The winner will receive an Echo weed trimmer from Fischer's and a year's subscription to The Perry County News.

The person finding the specially marked wooden token should contact Mark Laflin at 548-0778.

The sesquicentennial committee encourages the public to purchase memorabilia, including steins, coasters and Tell City flags. Items can be purchased at the offices of the Perry County Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau, both located at 601 Main St.

Merchandise is also available at Celebrations, Gatherings, William Tell Antiques and Tassels. Items are also available Sunday afternoons at the Tell City Historical Society Museum.


Clue 1: Windy Creek.

Clue 2: Streets named from famous people are all around this token's location.

Clue 3: You will have to look hard for this token. It will not be visible.
