Southern Maryland's Original Escape Room
The Old Leonardtown Jail
Many years ago at the Old Leonardtown Jail, there was an escape. Six townsfolk jailed for various offenses found their way to freedom! We don't know how they did it, but now you are in their shoes and have to use the clues they left behind. Can you follow their escape from the past to make your own run for it? You have 60 minutes to retrace their steps and solve the puzzles they solved before the guards find you and put you on lockdown.
The Legend of the Moll Dyer Witch
In the late 1600’s, Moll Dyer was a hermit who lived in the forest away from the other settlers in Leonardtown. When bad things such as crop failure, bad storms, unexplained deaths and freak accidents started to occur, the settlers blamed Moll Dyer, believing she was a witch! One winter, a group of settlers went to her hovel and set it ablaze while Moll Dyer fled into the forest.
Several weeks later a boy found her frozen body kneeling beside a rock with one hand raised as if casting a spell. The other hand was resting on a small boulder, which to this day has an imprint of her hand on it (This boulder is on display today in downtown Leonardtown). Initially, the settlers were relieved until their troubles started again.
Travel back to the night the settlers set her hovel on fire and discover the truth before its too late!
