It’s not too late to still catch a “A House in Mourning “at the Alexander Noble House Museum with Fall hours: Tuesday through Saturday. Our docents will guide you through the 1875 Greek Revival Farmhouse with authentic furnishings. Experience a Victorian-era funeral, including a antique pine coffin, a cooling table, a hair wreath and funeral plaques. Learn customs, etiquette and superstitions of the time. Also on display are a dozen vintage mourning gowns and so much more. It’s a display so interesting most visitors want to come back for a second glance.
Alexander Noble House Museum is also part of the DC Trolley Ghost Tours and this season has proven to be haunting with many sightings and unexplained happenings. Group tours are welcome, contact GHA at 920-868-2091 or email@example.com.
