Event description

Description

Combining history and macabre fantasy in the landmark setting of the Seiberling Mansion, just in time for Halloween.

The audience will move from room to room through the three-story 1890 house, tracking Jack the Ripper and meeting the authors of the creatures that have haunted us through books, plays and movies for at least 200 years.

The historical society is presenting the 2018 edition of the murder mystery tour on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 19 and 20. Five tours will be offered each evening, with start times on the hour from 5 to 9 p.m. Guests will track Jack the Ripper and meet characters from both life and Victorian Gothic literature while exploring the workings of the criminal mind.

Guests will begin at the Elliott House, where snacks and a cash bar will be available. At the appropriate hour, author H.G. Wells will greet each group, transporting them back in time as they move from the Elliott House to the Seiberling Mansion. There, Conan Doyle and Holmes will take over as guides through the mansion where they will gather clues to a famous murder from such personages as Queen Victoria and her physician, Dr. Gull, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Mary Shelley and friends, including her most famous creation – Frankenstein’s monster – will make an appearance, even more special in the 200th anniversary year of the publication of that famous novel. (note: Frankenstein is the 2018 Howard County Reads book selection!)

While those younger than 21 are welcome, guests should consider there will be mature content. For more information, contact the HCHS office at 765-452-4314. Memberships may be purchased at any time, including at the door. All proceeds of the event benefit the historical society.

Sponsored by Brandt's Heating and Cooling, Perfect Smiles Dental Care, and Choo Choo McGoo's.
