Murder Mystery Success!

Thank you to everyone who came out for our annual murder mystery last weekend! We had over 500 guests for the event.

Make sure to check our other upcoming events-
Next Saturday, the Kittatinny Associators, a French & Indian War era reenactment group, will be camped out in our courtyard. They will hold two trials at 11am & 2pm. Come help decide the fate of the accused! This event is FREE and FAMILY FRIENDLY! It would also be a great time to take a tour of the jail or John Brown House.
Friday, October 21 is Cellblock Trivia Night. Bring a team of up to 8 people or join one here to answer general knowledge questions. There will be door prizes and a prize for the winning team. Suggested donation of $5 per player & you are welcome to bring your own snacks and drinks.

We’d like to encourage anyone who came for the murder mystery to consider becoming a member of the historical society or volunteering here. Email ophistory@pa.net for info.
