MURDER MYSTERY DINNER
Cramer-Kenyon Heritage Home Board Members create three or four murder mysteries per year. Ten guests reserve seats at the table. The fun begins when guests arrive and are greeted by the butler who answers any questions they may have. Served hors d'oeuvres and libations in the front parlor while the participants get to know each other's characters. More conversation ensues around the dining room table as guests enjoy a delicious meal. But then, a murder is discovered and the guests must work with their hosts to find the culprit. Thus far, the time period has been no later than 1907 with most set in the early 1890s, but that may change. Suggested minimum donation is $50 per person.
This is not only a Yankton treasure it is truly a national treasure. As a historical site every US history class taught in Yankton should include a tour of the house and a study of its place in Yankton.
