Doesn’t everyone love a good mystery? Mysteries, who dunnits and more are part of the Deadbolt Mystery Society, whose creators will present a program, Making Mysteries, at Museum Moments at the Union County Heritage Museum on Thursday, August 19, at 12 noon.
Brothers Jason and Shawn Brannon created the Deadbolt Mystery Society to augment their Tupelo Escape Room in 2017, and the mystery society has blossomed into a monthly subscription that extends into some 40 countries.
Business boomed during COVID since so many people were stuck at home and looking for something to do. “People were looking for something to do and we were fortunate they found us,” Jason said.
The mysteries range from serial killers, to the “Infected” box, which was developed a year before the actual pandemic occurred. This was one of the most popular boxes during the pandemic, he said.
With more than 40 employees currently, the company has expanded into larger accommodations a couple of times. Writers, graphic designers, and marketing people are using “the little gray cells” as the dapper Agatha Christie’s detective Hercule Poirot would say, to create monthly mystery boxes for subscribers. One of the largest customers for the society is Amazon. And the success story continues.
The public is invited to attend Museum Moments and hear the brothers talk about the interesting success of the Deadbolt Mystery Society and what is coming next.
Social distancing, sanitation and masks are what the museum is doing to stay safe.
