North Salem Historical Society hosts “The Great Historic Lego Contest”
The North Salem Historical Society invites Lego lovers young and old to participate in a summer contest to re-create a local landmark using Lego bricks. The contest, held in partnership with the Ruth Keeler Memorial Library, will kick off this Sunday, July 11 at the Historical Society’s Strawberry Festival, which will be held on 81 Keeler Lane.
To help inspire builders, the Historical Society will showcase a Lego model of the Purdys Train Station c. 1900, built by North Salem resident Liam Trageser. Trageser will share his tips and process for those interested in participating in the contest. The Historical Society will also have books showcasing local historical sites for anyone looking for ideas and inspiration.
Entrants have until the end of August to create their masterpiece, with judging scheduled for September 10. The Historical Society asks that anyone who has Legos they would like to donate to drop them off at the Ruth Keeler Library.
