Saturday and Sunday, October 24 and 25
12 to 4 pm.
Enjoy creepy happenings at Heritage Square Museum at its Sixth Annual Halloween and Mourning Tours©. Learn all about death and mourning etiquette during the Victorian era and participate in a funeral inside one of our historic homes. Find out about Victorian Spiritualism - what it was, who followed it and why, and perhaps have your future foretold by a medium. See how other cultures celebrate and remember their loved ones as we look at the Mexican traditions and customs of El Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Finally, discover how even the intricate details of clothing played a role how Victorians showed their loss of a loved one.
On Sunday, (Oct 25), the Halloween and Mourning Tours program is more family friendly. Children ages 2 to 12 may come play period games, make 19th century harvest crafts, choose a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch (while supplies last), and listen to spooky stories in the Ford House by the San Gabriel Valley Storytellers.
