The Diary of Death – A Mystery 200 Years in the Making
A 200-year-old diary points the finger at a murderer, but the vital page is stolen before a name is revealed.  The inhabitants of this little garrison town (both past and present) will be happy to share their stories and answer questions as you investigate the murder of Dr. Smith in 1813 and uncover which present-day citizen was determined to protect their family’s reputation.  Script by local mystery author John Schlarbaum.  Advance tickets $8, available at Fort Malden NHSC, Park House Museum, GIbson Gallery, North American Black Historical Museum.  $10 at the door, Park House Museum, 214 Dalhousie Street.  This event runs from 6:30-9:30 pm and involves walking through downtown Amherstburg, rain or shine.  Recommended for ages 14+.  For information 519-736-2826 or office@gibsonartgallery.com.  Proceeds to Amherstburg Museums & Galleries
