The Murder Mystery Evenings are held annually at Linville Falls Winery at the end of May and began in 2015. Actors from the Mountain Heritage High School’s award winning drama department perform the murder mystery. It is written by the students and heavily depends on audience participation. The meal is prepared and catered by the Avery High School Culinary Department. Linville Falls Winery serves wine throughout the evening. Proceeds from the evening support scholarships for Mayland students.
