Is it possible to converse with those who've gone to the great beyond? The Victorians certainly thought so. Not to speak ill of the long-since deceased, but these people eagerly believed in paranormal poppycock like Ouija boards, seances, and mediums, the popularity of which was born of the era's obsession with death. Such subjects are discussed at the Seances and Spiritualists Tour once a month during fall, winter, and spring inside the circa-1890s Rosson House in Heritage Square. These TED talks of the macabre explore how the era's low life-expectancy rates (most didn't live past middle age and half of all kids kicked the bucket by 5) led to many folks reaching out to the hereafter. Ghastly Victorian-era practices like visiting morgues for entertainment or dressing up corpses for photos are also covered. If all this leaves you in need of a stiff one afterwards, elixirs and charcuterie follow at The Bungalow event space next door. The series is currently on pause at the moment because of the pandemic, but we're sure its organizers will be talking about the dead again soon.
