Houdini's Monmouth County mystery

John Barrows at This Day in Monmouth County History has written a terrific article about Houdini's known and possible appearances in Monmouth Country, New Jersey. I actually helped send him down one particular rabbit hole, which opens his piece:

On Monday, August 11, 1924, the legendary escape artist and entertainer Harry Houdini gave what may have been his one and only performance in Monmouth County.

Unless it never happened.

An entry into my own Houdini chronology hangs in the balance, so if we can help John confirm or deny this appearance at Ross-Fenton Farm in Wannamassa, that would be great. Or find any other Houdini appearances in Monmouth Country.
