Hendricks County Museum’s sets Chocolate Road Rally

The Hendricks County Museum will host its seventh annual road rally, the Great Chocolate Caper Tour Road Rally Oct. 9.
The rain or shine event starts at 8 a.m. and costs $10 per car as a donation to the museum. Meet in the museum parking lot, at the corner of Washington and Broadway streets.

Rally-Master Tim Macsay begins at 8:20 a.m.

Bring a clipboard for driving instructions, a pencil and compass.

The chocolate theme is a mystery.

“I am always surprised by the route Tim designs,” said museum board member, Deanna Hindsley. “He takes us through places I’ve never seen, and I have lived in Hendricks County all my life.”

A quick tour of the museum is offered after the road trip, and optional lunch will be at Mayberry Cafe.

The Hendricks County Museum building served as the residence of the Hendricks County Sheriffs and their families from 1866-1974, with the county jail in the basement. It is furnished as it would have been in the late 1800s to early 1900s and holds the stories of the beginnings of our county. It is open at 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
