Mystery night at the museum

Experience an opportunity to be a “history detective” on Tuesday, April 16 when the Plainville Historical Society hosts the second annual “mystery night at the museum.” Participants will be able to view, study, and try to identify or answer questions about fascinating items and photographs from days gone by.

From household items and artifacts to school photos and more, this collection is sure to make history come alive. The program is another in this year’s series planned to spark interest in local history especially as Plainville celebrates its 150th year as a town.

The program will begin at 7 p.m. at the historic center at 29 Pierce St. Refreshments will be served.  The Historical Society extends an invitation to all including those who may be new to Plainville and would like to learn more about the town.

While many of the items may be specific to Plainville, there are others that could have also been found in other towns. There will be items to interest everyone. Information on each will be “revealed” at the end of the evening.
