JCHC ESCAPE ROOM: REBEL RICHES
Rack your brain and those of your friends to solve the puzzle created by a truly “postal” and diabolical mind (Guess Who?). We uncage him for 1 month during October to torture your brains with cryptic clues.
The Scenario: Try to find the lost confederate gold hidden by Brookville’s only confederate soldier who is buried in Old Brookville Cemetery. He was part of Jefferson Davis’ unit detailed to hide confederate valuables from encroaching Union forces in 1865. He eventually married a woman from this area and raised his children here. He was given a soldier’s burial by the Grand Army of the Republic who had become his Union neighbors after the end of the war. The Gold Bars have never been found !!!
