Our tour begins as night falls. But there’s no need to be frightened! By the 1910s, Halloween, not yet a holiday for children, was a night for amusement and superstition, mischief and fortune telling. Victorian era sensibilities had transformed traditional macabre customs associated with the night into playful parlor games and tricks, which provided a clever guise for match-making and romance at society parties. Additionally, the popularity and growing appeal of Spiritualism and its demonstrations of mediumship provided both entertainment and spiritual catharsis for the grieving and curious.

 

Join us for this after-hours tour, where this October it’s 1913!  Light refreshments will follow to keep your spirits up!
