Memento Mori Tour

October 11, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm


The last known photograph of Mary Todd Lincoln shows Lincoln’s shade standing behind her in this great example of spirit photography.

“Memento Mori” is a Latin phrase that translates to “remember you will die.” Victorians were fascinated with death, mourning and the supernatural and this tour through the Rosson House explores these themes. Discover how Victorians attempted communication with the dead through seances, learn how visiting the morgue was considered entertainment, and wander up to the attic to hear ghost stories that haunted the 19th century.  While the Rosson House is not haunted, this tour will get you in the mood for ghosts and goblins. 

Please note that this tour is similar in content to the Seances and Spiritualists Tour. If you are interested in the full experience, you can sign up here. This exclusive tour will be limited, so get your tickets today!
