The Mansion’s Mystery Trunk: The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum/Ernest Hemingway/Young Writers’ Competition

May 1 @ 9:00 am - June 8 @ 5:00 pm

Free

This competition entitled, The Mansion’s Mystery Trunk, is a voluntary writing competition for third and eighth graders. Students will be asked to use their imagination to write an essay about the contents of a mid-to-late 19th century trunk serendipitously found during a tour at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum. What could the trunk contain? Who owned it? What do the contents tell us about the owner’s life and the story behind the objects in the trunk? While the students’ essays will be fictional, the objects imagined will have to be connected to real life events and the history of the Mansion, Norwalk, and mid-to-late 19th century America.
