Farmington Underground and Washburn-Norlands Living History Center recently completed their collaboration on a guided mystery tour through the month of October. The private tours featured historical stories and information about the Norlands property as well as interactive puzzle elements designed by Farmington Underground.
Over 200 people came to the site and completed a mystery tour, entitled “Tale of the Forgotten Son”, over the 4-week period. The goal of the collaboration was to increase engagement with local history in a safe and fun way. Over the past few months, Farmington Underground has worked with other organizations to design new ways of engaging the public with historical and artistic collections, and they are looking for other organizations that may be interested in a collaborative project.
