The Historic Fowler Theater is known for its beautifully restored Art Deco look and feel, but beyond the ornate, outward appearance, there is a history of mysterious noises, shadows and strange activity.

The old Benton County Jail once held Jacob Nelling, a man accused of brutally murdering at 15 year old girl. Jacob never got his time in court as a group of men decided his fate after storming the jail and dragging him to a short distance from the home of the murdered girl where he was hanged for all to see.
