WILTON, Conn. -- Fans of letterboxing can still get in on the hunt before the Second Annual Great Letterboxing History Hunt concludes with a celebration at the Wilton Historical Society from 3 to 4 p.m. May 31.

Since the event began May 15, letterboxers have visited seven local historical organizations, followed clues, found letterboxes and stamped their official maps.

The collaborating organizations are: The Fairfield Museum and History Center, the New Canaan Historical Society, the Norwalk Historical Society, Ridgefield’s Keeler Tavern, the Weston Historical Society, the Westport Historical Society and the Wilton Historical Society.

Participating letterboxers who stamp their official map at all seven locations will be eligible for a drawing that includes prizes such as a Pendleton Roll-Up Blanket, which is American-made and 100 percent wool.

Complete information about the Second Annual Great Letterboxing History Hunt can be found at the event’s “host” – the Wilton Historical Society – at www.wiltonhistorical.org.

Contacts, addresses, and links for each of the historical organizations, plus the downloadable Official Map and clues are posted.

Leigh Richardson will perform a live set on an acoustic guitar, and refreshments will be served at the wrap-up event on May 31.
