Was It Murder?: Scotchtown Lantern Tour and Program

Oct 14, 2023

6:00 pm — 9:00 pm

In June 1766, two Virginians became embroiled in a tavern brawl in Cumberland County that left one of them dead and the other under a cloud of suspicion and contempt. But, Was it Murder?

Join Scotchtown staff and our special guests for an evening of fun and spooky entertainment! We start the program with our presentation of Was it Murder in 3 acts. Afterwards enjoy cider, cookies and a discussion of mourning customs and traditions of the 18th and 19th centuries along with traditional ghost stories around a bonfire.

Costumes are welcome. Warm clothes and comfortable shoes are encouraged. This event is hosted almost entirely outdoors. No refunds given unless the event must be cancelled by Preservation Virginia due to inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances. Preservation Virginia members use code PVMEMBER at checkout.
