"Murders in Kittery"
presented by Bob Gray
with Kittery Adult Education
  — at the Museum

For over 100 years, Kittery has been the location of numerous despicable crimes. While none have been featured on "CSI" or "Criminal Minds", Kittery has had its share of notorious murders in its long history.

Come hear the tales of foul murder committed by drunken fiends and other ne'er-do-wells at the turn of the century.

Bob will travel back through history to focus on the poor victims as well as the criminals who committed these heinous crimes.

Bob is the President of the Kittery Historical & Naval Society.

Register through Kittery Adult Education. One session. Course fee: $12.

To avoid an "online convenience fee," you can register by telephone (207-439-5896) or mail (Kittery Adult Education, 12 Williams Ave, Kittery, ME 03904).
