Sample Activity for Historienteering

 

A Sample Activity
Start at the Victorian house that is bright pink
Built in 1846, it’s the perfect summer place I think
Henry C. Bowen and his family came here every year
From New York to spend the summer where the air is clear
His Fourth of July parties were in the news
When Presidents Grant, Hayes, Harrison and McKinley stated their views
Built in Gothic Revival style and isn’t the house grand
Step back and look at the details from where you stand
Look for the arches, the spires and the chimney pots
See the quatrefoils and trefoils that decorate many spots
