Sitting up with the Dead: Victorian Funeral and Spiritualism Exhibit


Take a step back in time to experience the sorrow and traditions of Victorian mourning with our Sitting up with the Dead Exhibit. Take a tour of East Terrace as if you were visiting the house  in mourning and experience the traditions that once were. Some of the highlights of the tour include a replica of President Lincoln's casket, a hearse, and the tradition of covering pictures and mirrors. This eerie and unique house tour experience creates and new and exciting approach to history!
