For well over a century now, the numerous quail hunting plantations of the area have continued a tradition of hunting quail, drawing sportsmen to Thomasville from across the country and around the world.
To celebrate the importance of the quail to the area’s heritage, locals and visitors can now hunt quail right in Downtown Thomasville! Not with guns, of course, but with their eyes.
Eighteen bronze quail statues are hidden high and low, in plain sight, in different locations in historic, Downtown Thomasville. Finding these fowl should be a fun and adventurous scavenger hunt for children and adults alike. The goal is to complete the hunt by locating all 18 quail. In the process, those who participate will gain a deeper appreciation of the natural and historic surroundings that Thomasville has to offer.
Stop by the Visitors Center at 144 East Jackson Street (inside the Municipal Auditorium Building) to pick-up a map and clues. This is a free, fun family activity throughout Downtown Thomasville!
