History Happy Hour: Buffalo Trace 

Friday, October 1, 7PM
$35/$30 SAA members

One of your favorite Edwards Place events is BACK. We would like to welcome bourbon lovers to our latest History Happy Hour event focusing on Buffalo Trace products. Join us for a tasting menu of five Buffalo Trace products - one of which will be a HHH signature cocktail! Dr. Nathan Steele, our experienced tasting guide, will take you on an exciting journey through the delicious selection we will be providing at the event.

Because the safety of our staff, volunteers, and guests is our first priority, we are adjusting this event - we are encouraging distancing by adding more tables and space and providing pre-packaged and pre-plated snacks and desserts. If there is another group that your party would like to sit with, please email us at collections@springfieldart.org to let us know, because seating will be assigned!

Your ticket will include the five drink tasting, snacks and desserts, and an informative and fun program provided by curator Sarah Adams and tasting guide Dr. Nathan Steele.

It is the 50th anniversary of the “Pumpkin Murder” in Edwards Manor. The owners are opening the house to the public for the first time since the grisly murder of former owner Reginald Blackmore, who was found at the bottom of the cellar staircase with a Jack-O-Lantern next to his body. Now, the E.S.P. is on a ghost hunt through Edwards Manor to see if they can call upon the spirit of Blackmore…and perhaps find the money he was rumored to have hidden within the walls of the house those many years ago. But during the ghost hunt, Linda Pratt, once secretary to Blackmore, is murdered in an eerily similar way. Guests will need to put their detective skills to the test to discover which of the six suspects is the murderer. Guests are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes! 

This fundraiser includes dinner, drinks, dessert, and an original show. Tickets are $50/$45 for members. 21+ only. Tickets cannot be bought at the door. Tickets must be purchased by October 11 at 9am.

Catered by Saputo's Italian Restaurant, directed by Justine Moser, written by Sarah Adams. All proceeds benefit the further restoration and interpretation of historic Edwards Place.
