Holiday Whodunnit: Children ages 6 to 11 and their family members are invited to solve a “history mystery.” The children become detectives, interviewing costumed interpreters, who portray Gilded Age houseguests and servants.  The Holiday Whodunit runs from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Children typically take 45 minutes to an hour to complete the program. The young detectives can enter a drawing, along with their guess as to “whodunit,” for prizes provided by the Friends of Mills Mansion and Oblong Books.
