Tales on the Town is a downtown scavenger hunt which celebrates Hartsville’s art, history, education and economic development.

One of the Tales on the Town Foxes

After traveling the world, Hart Fox decided to settle down in her favorite place, a small town called Hartsville. She saw that Hartsville is kind and compassionate–a perfect place to raise her thirteen pups. Mama Fox, as her pups call her, watches over her little foxes as they play and scamper in town. However, those mischievous pups love to play hide and seek. Can you help her find all thirteen little foxes hidden in plain sight?

Find all the foxes and get a certificate for helping Hart Fox find her pups! Visit The Key before or after the hunt to receive your certificate. Can’t visit The Key? Snap a selfie with the foxes and send the photos, along with your name and email address, to the Hartsville Tourism Department at

Tales on the Town is an art installation celebrating art, history, education, and economic development in the City of Hartsville. It is a project of the Greater Hartsville Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Hartsville program Class of 2013.
