Friday, October 20th 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Join us for a specially themed Haunted History event as we explore the traditions and elements of the Victorian funeral. Rosedale resident Dr. David Caldwell (1799-1861) died the same year as Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria –yes, the very Queen for whom the Victorian age is named, and whose mourning of her husband influenced funeral traditions of the time. Along with members of the Charlotte Area Paranormal Society (CAPS), the Historic Rosedale staff will discuss many of these funeral traditions -some macabre, some sentimental – and lead you through our 1815 home as it would have looked during a mourning period. The tour will be held both inside the house and outside in the gardens and grounds surrounding our historic house and reconstructed blacksmith shop. Spaces for this tour are limited for a proper socially distanced experience and to prevent, as the Victorians believed, the spirits of the dead from taking the spirits of the living with them!
Event is rain or shine. No refunds. No paper tickets will be issued. Please bring your credit card receipt – or mobile receipt on your phone – as it will serve as your ticket. Applicable sales tax will be added at time of purchase.
