History & Hooch

March 24 @ 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

$20

Step back in time as we explore and uncover the grisly past that gave Dead Man’s Hollow its name. We will be discussing the murderous events, drownings, and bootlegger stories in and around the hollow over the past 140 years. Attendees will learn how to read the land to rediscover old foundations, roads, and other items left behind by communities that once called Dead Man’s Hollow “home”. Finally, attendees will sample local moonshine as we talk about the old stills that were hidden in the hollow, and the murder supposedly linked to the hooch, or “white lightning” moonshine.

This is a 21 and over event.

Thank you to McLaughlin Distillery for providing moonshine for the event!
