Students will put teams of history aficionados to the test at a game show this weekend at Montage Mountain.
The Lackawanna Historical Society will hold its annual “You Live Here, You Should Know This” local history competition Saturday, April 30, at 6 p.m. at Montage Mountain’s Slocum Hollow Bar & Restaurant, 1000 Montage Mountain Road in Scranton.
“I think people in general like local history, but I think more people like local history in an entertaining way,” said Mary Ann Moran-Savakinus, the historical society’s executive director. “And we do have lectures and programs that are more serious, based on a certain topics. This gives people a way to enjoy history and have fun and learn at the same time.”
