The Fairhaven Association Brings Back Its Popular ‘Dirty Dan Murder Mystery Weekend’

Help solve the case of “The Mystery of the Midnight Train”


Submitted by the Fairhaven Association

‘It was a dark and stormy night when the first train roared into Fairhaven Station in 1890. As torrential rain turned muddy streets to rivers of chocolate milk, the townspeople drank and danced at a lavish gala welcoming the railroad. No one imagined that at midnight, when the train left the station, it would roll over the town’s most prominent man, leaving only his bowler hat floating in a puddle.”

Join your fellow gumshoes as you solve the crime! The Fairhaven Association brings back the popular Dirty Dan Murder Mystery Weekend for its third year.
