The Swedish Nightingale, Jenny Lind, returns Saturday to the Brown-Pusey House but this time as a part of a murder mystery.

The first time Lind visited Elizabethtown was in 1851. Documents from the Hardin County History Museum say she was under contract with P.T. Barnum to tour the United States. She performed a concert in Nashville and stopped in Elizabethtown while traveling by stagecoach on the way to Louisville. When people learned she was there they begged her to sing so she stood on the stone steps in front of the house. She sang several songs.

This time around, Lind is a character in the murder mystery “The Swedish Nightingale Returns” presented by the Brown-Pusey House and Trinkle Productions.

Audience members become detectives during the murder mystery theater.

Dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. with the performance following at 7:30 p.m. at the Brown-Pusey House in downtown Elizabethtown.

Tickets are $35 for adults and $30 for seniors age 65 and older.
