Halloween Hotel Horror
The Murder Mystery Players are bringing you another dinner theater Show!
Just in time to get you into the Halloween spirit. Awards given for the best customer costume each night. Two audience roles awarded to the most promising actors.

Troublemakers & Trailblazers
This exhibition presents the more colorful characters of the Chattahoochee Valley, people who were criticized or ostracized for being outside the mainstream or going against dominant power structures. Race, class, gender, and sexuality are the topics of discussion, as well as what it means to "do the right thing." An overarching theme is how we perceive "trouble" and how these troublemakers are sometimes, but not always, seen differently through the long lens of history.
