History Mystery coming up at Former Governors’ Mansion State Historic Site

BISMARCK – The Former Governors’ Mansion State Historic Site in Bismarck will be hosting a free History Mystery, a “who-done-it” murder mystery evening on Saturday, Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. Participants will be assigned roles to play for the evening and are encouraged to dress in period clothing. Awards will be given for best costume and best acting.

Space is limited. Reserve tickets at eventbrite.com/event/8616784033. Participants must be 12 or older to attend; those under age 16 must have a parent or guardian with them.

The plot of the murder mystery takes place in 1978. Citizens of a town simply known as “Good Land” are gathering to officially name the fast growing town in the future state of North Dakota. They hope it will become a bustling prosperous metropolis on the prairie. The townsfolk have gathered at the largest and most comfortable home in the community for a meeting to name the town and determine the next steps to making the community great. However, not everyone is neighborly; secrets are about to come out. It’s anyone’s guess as to who may commit murder for their own means!
