Halloween & Mourning Tours.

History buffs, make your way to the Heritage Square Museum this Halloween. On the first day of their annual two-day event, learn all about death and mourning etiquette during the Victorian era, including how even the intricate details on clothing played a role in showing the loss of a loved one. You'll also get the scoop on the Spiritualism movement, and can have your fortune told, if you dare. Then, take place in a funeral held inside one of the museum's historic homes. On the second, more family-friendly day, children can play period games, make 19th-century harvest crafts and listen to (only slightly) spooky ghost stories.
