Mystery in District 24:           

Saved by the bell! Something is not quite right in the District 24 rural schoolhouse. Your teacher, Ms. Carsoni, has been acting awfully strange this week, and there is a mysterious locked cabinet she refuses to let any student have access to. Now, it is up to you and your pals to investigate! Can you and your team make it through the puzzles Ms. Carsoni has left behind to discover the incredible secret she has locked in her cabinet? You have one hour to solve the mystery before Ms. Carsoni returns, or you may face a fate far worse than detention!

Call with any questions or concerns! (402) 302–1652

The Elkhorn Valley Historical Society was founded in 1958. The members of the society believe in the value of preserving the past, the memory and legacy of the lives of the people of the Elkhorn Valley for future generations. Thanks to the generosity of area citizens, businesses, organizations and grants, the Society was able to complete the construction of a beautiful museum building in 1997.

Our Museum Gift Shop contains works of local craftsman and artisans, history books, Johnny Carson DVDs, books by Nebraska authors, and more!
