It's the mid-1920s. An important meeting between rival mob bosses and madams is taking place at Edwards Place. During the post-meeting party, a mob boss is killed in grisly fashion, setting the stage for a classic whodunit. Guests will need to put their detective skills to the test to discover which of the six suspects is the murderer and solve the crime. Flapper, gangster or any 1920s attire is encouraged. In fact, if you and your friends and family decide to dress up for this event, submit your photos to Edwards Place and they might get posted on social media. The link to the Zoom session can be purchased for $5 and will include everyone in your group. Call for more information or find the link on the Virtual Edwards Place Murder Mystery Facebook event page. This event directly assists in the mission to preserve and interpret Edwards Place Historic Home.
