On June 20, 1940, OPP Constable Harold Dent apprehended a transient by the name of John Miki in the small village of Navan. Miki was suspected of some minor thefts in Gatineau and Rockland. Miki shot Constable Dent, who died on the floor of the train station. A manhunt followed, led by O.P.P. Sergeant J. A. Stringer . Sergeant Stringer tracked Miki through the village and fields and shot him during a brief stand off. Stringer was later awarded the King’s Medal for Bravery for his actions.

Adding to the atmosphere, the production is held outdoors, by lamplight. The Museum suggests that you dress according to the weather and wear comfortable shoes.
