The Musician's Secret

Come investigate a new mystery around the historic fort. You have just arrived at Fort Snelling in 1827 after a long journey from the failed Selkirk colony in the North. Your arrival takes a sudden turn when you discover that not everyone can be trusted, and you must decide who's keeping secrets. 
The fort's Sutler Store will be transformed into a historic tavern, and admission includes two drink tickets that can be redeemed for beer and wine (for ages 21 and up), as well as soda, water, or hot cider. This program takes place outdoors rain or shine. It is appropriate for ages 14 and up.
