The Owensboro Museum of Science and History, in collaboration with the Daviess County Library and Theatre Workshop of Owensboro, is pleased to announce this year’s performance dates and historic people that will be portrayed.
Performances will be held at Rosehill-Elmwood Cenemtary, 1300 Old Hartford Road. Wagon ride tours leave every thirty minutes from 6:00 – 9:30pm. There will be a special tent show Oct 1-3 at 6pm, followed by wagon rides beginning at 6:30.
Patrons are encouraged to call and make reservations for dates and times, as wagon rides tend to sell out.

In case of lightning storms or heavy rain, performances will be cancelled.
