Coffin that will be on display.

The Jasper County Historical Museum will host a family-friendly “Dark Night at the Museum” from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday. All are invited to hear a singing Civil War soldier, watch a mad barber, hear the radio broadcast of “War of the Worlds,” find creepy clowns and a school marm who spent too much time alone and see Maytag’s Ol’ Lonely, who is still lamenting with nothing much to do. A room in the museum, pictured above, is ready to accept visitors during the event, and the coffin at the left will be on display. Attendees are encouraged to wear costumes. The cost is $5 per person.
