Step back in time for mystery game nights at Bothwell Lodge State Historic Site. Sponsored by Missouri State Parks, the game will begin at 5 p.m., Friday, Sept. 25 and Saturday, Sept. 26 at the site.

The scenario takes place in the year 1929 when Mr. John Bothwell has just signed his last will and testament. Participants will act as detectives, questioning suspects and searching the home for clues in order to solve the mystery of Bothwell Lodge.
