Death Rites and Victorian Mourning Culture Specialty Tour

Oct 12th 2022 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM

Learn about the bygone customs and symbols of death used by Victorian-era Americans, including the Seward family. With war, rampant disease, and high infant mortality rates, death was not an unusual visitor to the average 1800s household. To handle this constant trauma, Victorians developed ways of coping with death that we may find strange today. Tickets are $10 for Seward House Museum Members and $15 for the General Public, advanced reservations are recommended for this event.
