This is the spooky Christmas event you didn’t know you needed! Join the members of the Mourning Society as we revive the 19th century tradition of Christmas ghost stories!

Costumed interpreters will be on hand to tell Christmas ghost stories, Charles Dickens-style, and will play Victorian parlor games with guests. A gentleman will be on hand to provide brief tours of this grand old 19th century mansion.
