Kaysville – Fruit Heights Museum and
Davis County Museums News Release
Come play with Davis County Museums during April Architectural Adventures
Everyone is invited to participate in a county-wide scavenger hunt during the month of April. Visit local museums to learn more about the homes and buildings in each area designed by well-known local architect William Allen. Each participant will receive a lanyard and button at the first museum. Collect an additional button at each individual museum visit.
Some of the historical Allen buildings are still standing and trips to each building will give participants the opportunity to scavenge for itty bitty architectural details featured on a clue handout. A link to an online tour of more buildings will be provided. Ask at each local museum for details of activities and exhibits specific to each locale. The Fielding Garr Ranch will participate with a unique activity representative of Antelope Island.
The Architectural Event is the first collaboration between the recently organized Davis County Museums organization, but more such activities are planned in the future. Representatives have been working together since January. The impetus for collaborative activities was the suggestion of the former director of the Heritage Museum of Layton who had created an exhibit featuring William Allen blueprints.
