The Three Valley Museum in Downtown Durant prides itself in bringing the history of Durant and Bryan County alive.
Coming up Friday May 9, 2014 the museum will also host a special guest to speak about a cold case mystery from the early 1900's, a murder mystery that was never solved.
 "Journey Story" on Friday evening May 9th at 5:30. The presentation will be given by Melody Amsel who will be traveling from Israel to speak of her ancestors who came to Durant in the early 1900's. Jake Amsel and wife Celia established a successful mercantile business in the fast growing town of Durant, but left everything, broken hearted, after a home intruder murdered their 14 year old daughter while she was sleeping. The details of the event are sketchy and the murder remains unsolved.

To hear more of Melody Amsel's story stop by the Donald W. Reynolds Community Center and Library at 5:30 p.m. Friday, May 9, 2014.
