Where else but in “The Heart of Screenland” can you drive around the city, search for certain locations and learn about Culver City history all at the same time? The Culver City Historical Society invites you to join the fun when it presents its second vintage Scavenger Hunt/Car Rally fundraiser on Sunday, September 21, from 3-6 p.m.
“Participants will start at the Society’s Archives and Resource Center (ARC) in back of the Veterans Memorial Building at 4117 Overland Avenue where packets containing directions and tickets will be distributed at 3 p.m.” said Michelle Bernardin, Society president. “From there, they will have a fun-filled self-guided tour driving from one place to another, learning facts about local history along the way. Some of the points of interest to be discovered along the route are: where Harry H. Culver first saw his wife- to- be, actress Lillian Roberts; where drag racing began; the landmark building that housed the MGM Fan Club, and many others. The final checkpoint will be a familiar location where everyone can celebrate with a taco dinner, a no-host bar, and a 50/50 raffle.
The cost for this fun-filled adventure is $30 for Culver City Historical Society members; $35 for non-members and $10 for children, ages 6-12. Reservations must be pre-paid and all RSVPs and checks (payable to the Culver City Historical Society) must be sent by September 15 and sent to Culver City Historical Society, P.O. Box 3428, Culver City, CA, 90231-3428.
“For safety, groups /cars of more than one person are encouraged,” said Bernardin.
The ARC will be open for viewing from 1 to 3 p.m. that day.
All proceeds benefit the Culver City Historical Society.
