Murder Mystery Weekend

For more than 15 years, mysterious characters rendezvous in South Sterling where for three days and two nights, murder, mystery and mayhem seem to prevail. The cast of characters are guests who join us for a Murder Mystery Weekend, each designed around a theme or event or time period in history. We’ve entertained mobsters and molls from the ’50s, flower children and hippies at Woodstock.

Upcoming Dates:

November 8th-10th and 15th-17th, 2019 by Jill Redding

Westward the Wagons

The year is 1855 and the trip west can be hard and dangerous as these intrepid travelers on the J.T. Poteet wagon train have found out. As they arrive in the small but flourishing town of Huckleberry in the shadow of Fort Whatshamakalit in Colorado. They are tired, weak and determined to move on their way to
California. They started out together when they all met in St Louis 4 months ago. Traveling from Pennsylvania, New York, North and South Carolina, Georgia and Rhode Island. When the wagon train pulled from St. Louis there were 25 wagons. Now as they pull into Huckleberry there are only 10 wagons left. They must wait out the winter before moving on to California. Will doubling the town’s population put a strain on the already understaffed saloon? Who will survive and who will not?
