Staatsburg, N.Y.— For over a century, the sinking of the RMS Titanic has captured the imagination of the public – but how much do you actually know about the disaster?

On the anniversary of the Titanic’s maiden voyage, Staatsburgh State Historic Site is calling all history buffs and buffs-in-the-making to test their knowledge during an evening of live Titanic-themed exploration. Based on their popular online “pub-trivia”-style events hosted virtually by Staatsburgh staff, contestants can play along individually or in single-household teams from the safety and comfort of home. Covering three rounds of questions, “Staatsburgh Quiz Night: Titanic-sized Edition” will focus on the story and legacy of the Titanic – including its Hudson Valley connections, countless film adaptations, and the fascinating parallels between Staatsburgh and “The Ship of Dreams.” There is a special prize for nightly winners donated by the Friends of Hyde Park and the Friends of Mills at Staatsburgh.
