The Heritage Hunt is back!

The Peterborough Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee has launched its annual Heritage Hunt contest. Small groups and individuals are encouraged to test their knowledge of Peterborough’s architecture for a chance to win great prizes. Prizes will be awarded for the correct identification of the most architectural elements on the clue sheet. 

This year's contest consists of identifying 36 architectural details on buildings in a defined area within the borders of Hunter Street East, Rogers Street, Maria Street and Engleburn Avenue. All details are clearly visible from public areas. There is a map of the Heritage Hunt area at the bottom of this page.

Select the link below for our mobile-friendly form that you can submit online. If you prefer a hard copy, booklets are available at the reception desk at City Hall, 500 George St. N. from Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You may also download and print the Heritage Hunt PDF found below.

Answers can be submitted using the form, by mail or by email to heritage@peterborough.ca by August 31, 2021.

The City of Peterborough asks that during these challenging times, people enjoying the Heritage Hunt follow all Peterborough Public Health recommendations to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including physical distancing.
