Visitors come from all over and remark,
"What a charming town...
I bet it's always been like this!"

Hmmm ... not exactly.”

Come join us as we venture back in time to search for the hidden history lurking just out of sight in downtown Bordentown.  Seven of Bordentown's most shocking turn of the century true tales will come to life in an evening of theatrical storytelling.  We will peel back the town's charming exterior and take a hard look at Bordentown's darker, tragic past.  Learn the truth behind the legends and rumors while seated in one of the oldest buildings in Bordentown.  Dead men tell no tales...but we will!
