New night added!

Mystery at the Mansion

Saturday, March 16, 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 two week 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 costumes and for guessing 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 the interior, exterior, and operations of our 1882 mansion and museum.

Please note: 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.
