MMMurder in the Mist - A Hauberg Mystery Scavenger Hunt Sat, 4/7/18 • 7:00pm-10:00pm
Oh no, not again!! There's been another murder at the mansion! This time the body was found in the middle of what used to be a pond at the bottom of the historic landscape. Was something found there that led to the victim's untimely death? Could there be clues hidden within old maps of the area or throughout the mansion? And, more importantly, what SECRET was important enough to someone that they would commit MURDER in order to keep it that way?!

Bring your friends and work together at your own pace to search through the house for clues—we'll provide the hors d'oeuvres if you help us solve the mystery! A cash bar will be open to adults 21 and older with a valid ID.

$35.00 per guest.
Ages 16 and up. This event will take place inside the mansion. Ability to navigate stairs on all floors required.

All proceeds support restoration efforts and operations for the historic Hauberg Estate.
