Far Hills Speaker Series

History, Mystery, Mayhem and Murder

Angelina Hoschouer, Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum
Sunday September 13, 2 p.m.
Wright Memorial Public Library

This presentation will keep you on the edge of your seat as tales of Dayton’s own bank robbers, counterfeiters and murderers are told. Who confessed on their deathbed of murdering pretty 18 year old Christine Kett? Did Rose Shafor really dress up as a man to help her lover commit a crime? Who killed Julius Kruse? And was the “Cincinnati Ripper” living in Dayton? These stories and more are told in this chilling presentation of Dayton’s darker side.
