Welcome back to Cherokee County’s 125th Birthday Scavenger Hunt!

Our third batch of questions, posted below, focuses on the years 1948 to 1972 in Cherokee County’s history. We’ll accept answers to Round 3 through May 25.

Answers can be submitted below or via a drop box at the Cherokee County Administration Building, 110 Railroad Ave., Gaffney.

A prize valued at $300 will be awarded to the overall winner. In the case of a tie, the overall winner will be selected at random among those who get the most correct answers.

Cherokee County Council will announce the winners at its Aug. 8 meeting.

The Cherokee County Museum, 301 College Drive in Gaffney, is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. The museum will waive the fee for those visiting to complete the scavenger hunt.

Answers to those questions will be accepted through 4:59 p.m. on the 25th of the following month.

Questions will also appear in The Gaffney Ledger and The Cherokee Chronicle each month.

Good luck!
