Though most folks in Parker know the downtown Mainstreet Center, not all are aware that in 1915 it was the new Parker Consolidated School, home to 38 students. To celebrate the building’s 100th birthday, three FREE family-friendly events will be held on Saturday, August 29. First up is Parker Quest, a scavenger-hunt-style event beginning at 10 a.m. Families, teams, and individuals can enjoy an adventure-filled tour of downtown Parker while exploring Parker’s history and heritage. The journey begins at the O’Brien Park gazebo, where participants will receive a passport with clues. Each clue must be solved in order to move on to the next location. To register for Parker Quest, call 303-791-7323, or go to the Douglas County Libraries website, click on the “Events” tab and select August 29 on the calendar icon. Then, check out the new Parker Heritage Center located in the Mainstreet Center building. View the local history exhibits and get a glimpse of what Parker looked like 100 years ago. And what’s a birthday without a party? To wrap up the day, there will be FREE refreshments, old-fashioned games, a car show with fire trucks, and of course, cake, all at Mainstreet Center.
