Justice will be served and you are the jury! After enjoying an evening meal of Homemade Meatloaf or Chicken & Dumplings, Garden Salad, Creamed potatoes, Italian Green Beans, Apple cobbler, or Chocolate earthquake cake with ice cream at Williams’ Tavern Restaurant, guests will proceed to the 1836 Courthouse. There they will take part in a living history drama where they judge the guilt or innocence of a man accused of murder. The drama is based upon an actual 1844 trial that took place in that actual courtroom. Twelve lucky guests will be chosen as the jury and the others will be witness to one of the most exciting trial re-enactments ever performed in the area. Did Henry Skaggs kill his friend, William Oaks, in COLD BLOOD! Will the verdict be HANG HIM? You will decide!
