Here at the Raupp Museum, we have a strong affection for all things Girl Scout. We love seeing the enthusiastic faces that grace our galleries, and avidly watch for that magical time of the year when Thin Mints and Samoas appear. In honor of Girl Scout week, we are highlighting our Girl Scout programs.
Can you figure out who killed Mrs. Krueger and her mother? In 1899, a scandal rocked Long Grove, as Bertha Krueger and her mother, Margaret, were found dead in their Long Grove farm house. Did George Kreuger kill his wife? Or did Bertha go insane? Girls will use modern forensic techniques to get to the bottom of this murder mystery. Scouts will combined science and history as they work to solve this crime using finger prints, examine bullets, and extract DNA from a strawberry. There is a cost of $5 per girl and the junior detective badge is included. Please note this program is appropriate for Junior and Cadette Girl Scouts.
