Murders, thefts, scams and riots are not unique to the 21st century. Research by the WCHS exhibition committee has revealed that these crimes and more were committed in Washtenaw County in the 19th century.
Opening August 29 and running through November 29, "Murder, Mayhem and Mischief: Crime in Wastenaw County in the 19th Century." will give Museum on Main Street visitors an opportunity to learn how thes crimes were committed and solved and how the perpetrators were punished -- or not!
Visitors are invited to test their own observations, knowledge and intellectual skills in crime solving.
