You're invited to
Victorian Halloween
Sunday, October 9th noon-5PM

Share in spirited realities of Victorian life and death amid the candlelit rooms on the Hagen History Center campus
356 West 6th St.
Erie, PA 16507

During this family-friendly event, visit four rooms by candlelight where you’ll:

1. Hear the cringeworthy legend of 1790s General Mad Anthony Wayne's death and the grisly use of the pot on display. He's buried in two places!

2. Witness Victorian funeral rituals coming to life as we cover the mirrors, pictures and windows and introduce customs of sin eaters, hair jewelry and more.

3. Be mesmerized by the spiritualist beliefs of the Victorian Era.

4. Dig into wicked good fun, traditions, trickery and tastes of Victorian era Halloween celebrations.
