History on Trial for KIDS: The Prohibition Cases of “Dry” Marietta

This session of History on Trial is abbreviated and geared towards a younger audience for students and families.

The term “prohibition” conjures up images of Al Capone and gangsters in big cities, but small towns like Marietta saw their fair share of illegal speakeasies, bathtub stills, and even high speed chases down Front Street. Experience a court room drama based on the Prohibition crimes committed and prosecuted in Washington County. Witness the legal proceedings as tried by the modern day lawyers of Washington County in Court Room A, 3rd Floor at the Washington County Court House. The outcome of the case will depend on you! A panel discussion will follow.

$5 Under 18; $10 Age 18+. Reservations Required. Space is Limited.
