Garden Escape Room! Bland’s Botanical Bequest

Faculty Preview September 20-21, 2022
Opens: October 2-6, 9-13, 2022
To Celebrate Georgia Archives Month

Bland’s Botanical Bequest is a fast-paced immersive game in which you must work together to solve puzzles and dig through mysteries of the past to ‘escape’ the Bland Cottage!

Do you think you can find all of the clues before it’s too late?
This game is based on real-life stories and archival materials once belonging to Dan and Catharine Bland of the Botanic Garden at Georgia Southern University– now housed at the Zach S. Henderson Library Special Collections archives! Join us this year at the GS Botanic Garden’s Bland Family Cottage as we celebrate Georgia Archives Month and the value of Special Collections as a caretaker of historical records!
