Guests will be treated to an interactive dinner with the following backstory: “It is July 30, 1929. Everyone has gathered to observe the memory of Mr. Gaslight. Tonight, his will is to be read to everyone in attendance.

While guests enjoy their evening meal, there is a scream from the upstairs hall. The body guard has been stabbed! Someone at this gathering is a murderer…”

This event is open to adults 21 years of age or older. Dinner tickets are $30 per person and may be purchased at the Goodman Museum by cash, check or money order. Seating is limited. Dinner will be provided by the Potpourri House.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Goodman Museum and donations are tax deductible.

The Goodman House is a fitting place for this event, as some say the family never truly left.

Regular museum hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information about the Goodman Museum or event, please contact Mary Foster, museum curator, at 903-531-1286 or
