ST. CLOUD (WJON News) -- You and your friends can work together to solve a mystery this holiday season.

The second annual Stearns History Museum Escape Room will be held on four nights.

Spokeswoman Caitlin Carlson says participants will travel back in time to a haunted Stearns County farmhouse around the year 1880.

This year we celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Pioneer Settlers Association, so we chose a homestead pioneer era as the setting.

Carlson says the haunted theme comes from some traditional Christmas song.

There's a Christmas song that talks about telling ghost stories, that's not something we do anymore but I thought it might be fun to use that as a jumping-off point as a theme.

The board room at the museum has been transformed into an escape room. Up to six people can reserve a spot and will have 30 to 40 minutes to escape.
