Event Description:

     In the year of 1896, a crime would stir a whirlwind of fears in the small little community known as Pleasant Valley in southern Richland County.  Join us for a fresh, dramatic exploration of the true Ceely Rose story on the site where it actually happened. The drama is presented in a multi media format that includes music, storytelling, historic photos, and acting in a Chautauqua style performance. The evening will be capped off by stories of Ceely ghost sightings.

      There will be a optional dinner served at 6:00pm and can be enjoyed at picnic tables nearby or in the barn at tables. (BBQ Chicken and Ribs, Au Gratin Potatoes, Green Beans, Cole Slaw, Roll/Butter, Drink)
