It's an evening of fun, mystery, and fundraising. The Fort Caspar Museum Association is hosting an interactive murder mystery evening including a mock murder, a cast of suspects, lots of clues, all at an historic Casper location. "Murder at the Gothberg Ranch" will be held on Saturday, August 25th at the historic Gothberg Ranch, just west of Casper. Proceeds will go to support the Fort Caspar Museum.

It starts with a Western-style barbeque meal from Bullwhip Catering as you witness a "murder" and then become part of the show as detectives, questioning the suspects and trying to collect enough clues by the end of the evening to solve the crime.

Guests are encouraged, but not required, to join the spirit of the evening by wearing Old West attire and there will be a costume contest as well as a silent auction and cash bar. This is mostly an outdoor event, and organizers say it will proceed rain or shine. Sensible walking shoes are required.
