As the story is told Thomas Paine’s bones remain at large. We need your help to find them!


Just for playing you will be submitted into a drawing for $50 in Bordentown Bucks - these are dollars that can only be spent in Bordentown City and are as good as cash.

IF you solve the Historical Question there is a little extra treat for those who get it right!

You will have fun and learn about our charming little town and the amazing historical facts that happened right here in Bordentown City!


STEP 1 - Print your Game Card which will be available January 21, 2015 or you can pick them up in Bordentown City at any participating business with a Thomas Paine Picture in the window

STEP 2 - Each participating business has one or two of Thomas Paines bones in their business. Each bone has a number on it. Write the number or numbers on your sheet. If you find all of Thomas Paines bones then your numbers will tally up to a Year. The Year will total up to a Historical happening in Bordentown City.

STEP 3 - Take your number (year) and match it up to one of the flags along Farnsworth Avenue. These flags are historical markers that tell the History of Bordentown City and will also be your final answer.

STEP 4 - Return your playing card to The Old Book Shop of Bordentown located at 200 Farnsworth Avenue.
