summer on the veranda

Friday, June 7, 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Relax in Victorian splendor while you stroll the veranda with a lemonade, ice tea, or mock mint julep in hand while listening to performances on our 1875 square grand piano. Ladies are encouraged to wear their best Kentucky Derby-style hat (why wear your finest only one day a year!) or we will gladly supply one. Gents can sport their own bowler or boater or wear one of ours. Our docents will be dressed up too and playing the roles of the Rogers family’s servants as they welcome you into their home.

The evening is about slowing down the pace of life while being immersed in the lavish surrounding of our beautifully restored 1882 Queen Anne Style home. Advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended.

Tickets are $10 and include tours of Hearthstone and beverages. All proceeds support the work of Friends of Hearthstone, Inc., a 501 (c) 3 public charity, that lovingly restores Hearthstone, a 1882 mansion and museum.

Mystery at the Mansion

Saturday, June 15, from 7:00 - 10:00 pm

Mystery, Mayhem, Murder! Join us for a live game of “Who dun it?” in the unmatched surroundings of Hearthstone’s beautiful interiors. Guests assume the persona of characters… think heiresses, playboys, millionaires, art dealers and authors (but some may not be what they appear to be!) in an Agatha Christie-type mystery to try to solve (or sometimes commit!) murder.

Guests will be sent identity packages via email one to two weeks prior to the event. Costumes are strongly encouraged (it’s part of the fun!). All tickets include hors d’ oeuvres, wine, and other beverages served by our docents in the roles of maids and butlers. One of our staff keeps everything on track towards a suspenseful conclusion. Prizes are awarded for best costume, best acting, and a grand prize for the first to guess the identity of the killer (or could that be killers?). It’s dinner and daggers (figuratively if not literally!) and danger surrounded by Hearthstone’s beautifully restored rooms.

All proceeds support the work of Friends of Hearthstone, Inc., a 501 (c) 3 public charity, that lovingly restores our 1882 mansion and museum.

Please note: Tickets are date specific. No physical tickets will be sent out. Simply provide a copy of the confirmation email or the confirmation number and the purchaser’s name at the door on the night of the event. Guests must be 21 years old or older to participate.

Limited parking is available on-site. Additional free parking is available on State Street one half block east of the museum.

Unfortunately, M.A.P. passes cannot be used for this event.

Please note:  Because of the historic nature of Hearthstone, stairs are the only means of access to the second floor.  The first floor and lower level are wheel chair accessible via an electric lift.
