HISTORY'S MYSTERIES: Jefferson County Historical Society Solves Crimes for Victorian Festival
Likely looking suspects: The gentry of Port Townsend, their servant, the law, and ladies of negotiable affection gather to inquire into the death of Charles Eisenbeis, Jr. during the Victorian Festival in Port Townsend, WA. In the front, between the handsome little boy and the beautiful young lady is my hyper respectable self as Kate Eisenbeis, the heiress to Eisenbeis Castle, now Manressa Castle, stepmother to the victim. I played Kate as an old battleaxe accusing her daughter in law of the crime (pretty young woman with a guilty expression seated to my R), but in truth, Kate was the child bride of Charles Sr. , 32 years younger than him and something of a trophy wife.
