Old Settlers 2008 Medallion Hunt Clues

Clues are published weekly here on this web site and in the Halstead weekly newspaper. A winner with an Old Settlers Button will receive $100. A winner without Old Settlers Button will receive $20. Contact Old Settlers for information about Medallion Hunt rules/guidelines.

STOP LOOKING! The Medallion has been found

The 2008 Old Settlers Medallion was found at 8:30 p.m. on July 30th by Drew Benton and Dorinda Albrecht. The medallion was hidden in the Welcome To Halstead planter at North Street and Main.

  • Clue #3 (July 30, 2008):
    If you search the right way you will rock and find a banner prize. Seek the medallion with vigor and don't be concerned with wearing out your welcome.
  • Clue #2 (July 23, 2008):
    The way to the Dragon is not south,
    west or east but north is the way.
    If your journey takes you past the running water,
    your search will not pay.
  • Clue #1 (July 16, 2008):
    The Medallion rests in Halstead. On private property it is not. The big jackpot could be yours. But the button you must have bought.
