1. Step 1 Selection
Sunday August 11
2:30 PM - 6:00 PM

Join us at Dayton's Old Courthouse to witness an early 20th century Dayton murder trial reenactment while Dayton History staff and volunteers set the stage for this interactive courtroom drama.

Audience members hear testimonies from witnesses, arguments from the prosecution and defense, converse with costumed spectators, study period newspapers, and view historical exhibits to uncover the events surrounding the trial.

Twelve fortunate spectators are selected as jurors to determine the fate of the accused.

The Dayton Alumni Community has reserved 20 tickets for the Sunday, Aug. 11 courtroom event. Arrival time at Dayton’s Old Courthouse is 2:30pm. The actual “trial” starts at 3 p.m. and lasts approximately three hours.

Tickets are $15 each and payment is required with registration. Space is limited so register soon. Deadline to register is May 31.
