Dutch American Heritage Museum Presents: Widow on the Witness Stand

The Dutch American Heritage Museum will continue its 2019 “Nights at the Museum” series on Wednesday, July 10, at 6:00 p.m., with Greta Grond presenting Widow on the Witness Stand.

Allegations of domestic violence. Pleas of mental insanity. Did Alice Blood murder her husband in cold blood, or was it self-defense? Hear about the accused widow’s 1899 trial in the Sioux County Courthouse.

The “Nights at the Museum” events, held throughout the summer and fall, feature a guest speaker sharing a topic of regional historical interest. The first presentation of the 2019 series had over 100 attendees.

Seating is limited, and the museum opens for the presentation at 5:30 p.m. A freewill donation will be taken at the door.
