Join the Amazing History Race Through the Mahoning Valley

Do you love scavenger hunts? The Mahoning Valley Historical Society does too, which is why they created the Amazing History Race! You and your competitors will travel around the local area, racing to be the first to discover all of the hunt's local landmarks and get back to the finish line. Afterward, enjoy a party downtown to celebrate the Valley's history!
