Eerie October Outing

Victorian funerals and mourning rituals were very interesting... and some would say strange and....creepy!   Experience Victorian mourning customs at My Old Kentucky Home during the month of October!  The mansion will be transformed to show the death and funeral customs of the Victorian age, including displays of artifacts such as death masks, jewelry made from the hair of the deceased, and tear vials.   Mirrors hung backward, black draped doorknobs, and a wake in the parlor all add to the experience!    "Weep no More" is part of the regular 40-minute guided tour of My Old Kentucky Home, which run from 9:00 am t 4:00 pm every day.
