2020 Heritage Hunt

Downtown Discovery Tour

Here's a chance to test your knowledge of Peterborough's downtown architecture and win great prizes. You can enter as an individual, couple, or small group. This year's prizes will be gift cards generously donated by the Peterborough Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee for a variety of downtown shops and restaurants. The City of Peterborough recently created more pedestrian space and flexible-use areas downtown to provide more opportunities for physical distancing.

The contest consists of identifying the location of 34 architectural details on buildings within the area bordered by Water, Aylmer, Brock, and Charlotte streets. All details are clearly visible from public areas. When you or your group have found them, fill in the address or describe the location if an address is not easily apparent beside each image below. 

Complete the online form and submit before August 31, 2020. Happy heritage hunting!
