Flat Charlie Children’s Summer Program

June 6 – August 12 (10 week program)
Museum Complex

Looking for something for your kids to do this summer? We’ve got you covered! Throughout the summer weeks, the museum will be hiding “Flat Charlie” around the museum grounds for your little ones to find! Charlie, or Charles D. “Doc” Bevington, built the Bevington Mansion in 1856 and owned all the land that is now the Historical Complex. Back then, Charlie roamed this ground and this summer he’s doing it again.

Each week, Charlie will be hidden in a new location, and picture clues of where he’s hiding will be posted to our Facebook and Instagram social media pages. The pictures will further reveal Charlie’s location throughout the week, until he’s found. The first child to spot Charlie each week will receive a prize of a free local treat!

The first week of Flat Charlie will be June 6. Keep an eye on our Facebook page to try your hand at finding Charlie’s first hiding spot!

Thursdays, June 2 – July 7, 7:00 pm

Due to the Courthouse Restoration Project, the Winterset Community Band will hold their summer concert series on the porch of the Bevington Mansion for the 2022 season! Performances will take place each Thursday throughout the month of June, and on Thursday, July 7. Music starts at 7:00 p.m., and various local organizations will be serving a meal each evening starting at 6:00 p.m. for a fee.

Seating will be on the lawn of the mansion, so participants are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket and some bug spray. Bring the entire family out for a fun night of music on The Hill!
