Neighbors of the Old Stone House Museum are offering a reward to anyone who helps bring to justice those who spray-painted swastikas there last weekend. Ellen Harvey said it was she and her husband, while on a walk with their dog Sunday morning, who discovered the hateful acts of vandalism on the museum’s Prospect Hill Observation Tower. State police are investigating the crime. They believe sometime between 5 p.m. on Saturday and 9:45 Sunday morning orange spray paint was used to deface the tower with the anti-Semitic images and messaging. They said the act is a “hate crime,” which means the state’s attorney can seek an enhanced penalty for those responsible. Police are asking for the public to provide any information that leads to the person or people responsible. Harvey said she and her husband decided that they wanted to help incentivize someone to come forward with information and pledged money for a reward.
