Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site hosting ‘Death in the Library’ murder mystery theater

INDIANAPOIS (WISH)– The Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site is bringing back its in-person murder mystery theater experience for people to enjoy. All you need to bring are the friends and family who make the best detectives. Visitors participating in the “Death in the Library” murder mystery theater will be trying to solve the death of a fictional character and author J.R. Hartley.
