Widows and Wakes: A Victorian House in Mourning 

When: Sat., Oct. 25, 7-9 p.m. 2014
Phone: 919-477-5498
Email: duke@ncdcr.gov
Price: $4.00
During the evening of October the 25th visitors may come for a special candlelight tour of the historic house. As visitors move through the house they will encounter the dying, the dead and their mourners, and those attempting to reach out to the great beyond. On this guided tour, visitors will experience first person interpretation of how doctors attended a dying patient and prepared family members to say goodbye, widows grieving their loss at a wake held in the parlor, and the reenactment of a period seance in the dining room.
