Join us for an after-hours tour of the Log House, where this October, it’s Halloween, 1913!

 

By 1913, Halloween was being celebrated by people across America as a night for amusement and superstition, mischief and fortune telling. Revelers spent Halloween night fluttering between fits of laughter and screams of pretend fright as games of divination predicted their fortunes in life and in love. Are you destined for an early marriage or spinsterhood? A life of wealth or poverty? All will be revealed on Hallowe’en night!

 

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!
