Mount Vernon –On Thursday, June 30, the Chautauqua Series presents Mark Jordan bringing to life yet another local murder mystery, Cletus Reese and Murder Ridge. Mark has presented many Chautauqua’s and is the author of “The Ceely Rose Murders at Malabar Farm” and has presented his investigative research and reporting of the early 1900’s Maplehurst Murder in Mount Vernon. The Chautauqua Series is brought to you with the help of a grant provided by the Ariel Foundation.
For those unfamiliar with the Chautauqua format, these programs generally present historical figures in first person portrayals, dressed in the clothing of the era. This particular Chautauqua will be Mark’s reporting on his research on the murders that occurred in Warsaw, Ohio, Coshocton County. After his presentation Mark will take questions from the audience. These programs are intended for families, students and all who wish to know more about history in a family friendly, entertaining manner. The program is presented on a donation basis – with all the proceeds going to the performer.
There will be no opening act for this Chautauqua so please come early to see full presentation.
