Saturday, October 13, 2018, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Event Navigation

 
 

Discover the curious world of nineteenth-century mediums, magicians, and spiritualists in New York’s foremost Victorian-era cemetery, Green-Wood. With a focus on the evolution and legacy of Spiritualism, this eye-opening trolley tour explores the era’s obsession to commune with the dead and how this desire influenced entertainment, feminism, science, and technology. This tour is led by Andrea Janes, owner and founder of Boroughs of the Dead.

 

$20 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $25 for non-members
