Eliza Barton is throwing a welcome-home party for her childhood best friend, Rose Hawkins, and you are invited!

You remember Rose from her childhood when she used to live in the neighborhood of Farthington.  She had always been a close friend of the Bartons, so you weren't surprised to see her reconnecting with Eliza after all these years. 

Sadly, the Barton family suffered a great loss when Eliza and Ewan's mother, Mrs. Martha Barton died suddenly from an illness.  Not only did it tear the family apart, but Rose seemed to take it hard as well, losing touch with the family.  It wasn't long after that that Rose married and moved out of Farthington.

Not much was heard from her after that.  Those who stayed in Farthington knew that the Barton family continued to suffer tragedy, when an accident at the river claimed the life of their son, Ewan Barton.

Now, years later, and newly widowed, Rose has returned to her childhood home, determined to start a new life.  Yes, something isn't right.  Those gathered here tonight are an odd assortment of neighbors, townspeople, workers, and even servants--all who once were associated somehow with the Barton family.

Is Rose just trying to reconnect with acquaintances from her past?  Or is something strange going on tonight?  You aren't sure, but your curiosity has urged you here...

Be part of the action as Whose Clues leads us through "Murder at Barton Manor," an interactive Regency-themed murder mystery party!

Each registrant will be given a character to portray for the evening of the event.  (Dressing the part is strongly encouraged!)  During the night, you will be given insight and guidance regarding what your character knows, believes, or wants others to think.  Keep track of clues revealed in the course of the mystery and see if you can determine 'whodunit'!

Registration is required for each person who wishes to participate in this event and each "character" must be able to attend using their own device.  Space is limited and registration will be open to RSV members only through March 13.  After that, registration is open to all until April 10.

Spaces filled?  Be sure to join our waitlist!  We'll contact those on the waitlist should a space become available!
