A Hunt for Buckhead's Hidden Secrets

Where's the Buck?Date: Sunday, May 1, 2016

Guests gathered for drinks before embarking on a history-themed scavenger hunt through Buckhead. In teams, guests competed against each other to solve clues, seek out historic locations, and take photos related to the community’s past. Each successfully resolved riddle was awarded points.

At the end of the hunt, guests returned to the festivities for hors d'oeuvres and a rousing closing ceremony where the winning teams were celebrated.

The first clue: At 4:00 sharp, guests met at the private Buckhead location of a badminton supper club during the 1960s—a regular event that brought together Atlanta's leading bankers and attorneys.

Proceeds from the event benefit Buckhead Heritage and its mission to identify, preserve, and promote Buckhead’s history and historic resources.

This event was SOLD OUT.
