Mystery event at PC Museum to test sleuthing skills

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Just in time for Halloween, a Museum Mystery will be staged at the Putnam County Museum, 1105 N. Jackson St., Greencastle.

The evening of Saturday, Oct. 7 participants will try to solve a witchy who-done-it. The interactive event features attendees playing the various parts of the Museum Mystery story.

The doors will open at 4:30 p.m. with the event starting at 5.

Based on a tale of the Salem witches, “Are You a Good Witch or a Bad Witch?” will challenge attendees’ sleuthing skills.

Heavy hors d’oeuvres and finger food will be served along with cauldron cider and other treats of the season.

An adults-only evening is planned, persons should come dressed in their best costumes. Roles will range from Salem town bystanders to pivotal characters.

The mystery will be unraveled and the villain revealed at Forest Hill Cemetery, where Putnam County Historian Larry Tippin will give a guided tour of the spooky highlights of this most bewitching of county cemeteries.

Tickets can be reserved by calling the museum (653-8419) before Sept. 18 as they are expected to go quickly. Individual tickets will be $30 and couples will be $50.

Persons are urged to come ready to participate in a story full of history, scares and plot twists.
