This year Long Branch Plantation will be hosting a special night time tour for three nights in October. Guests will be taken on a guided tour of the home by candlelight while their tour guide explains how people in the 19th Century understood and experienced death.

Death was something many in the 19th Century had to deal with on a basis we are unfamiliar with today. The idea of a good death and what should be done after death were not entirely the same as they are today. During the 19th Century superstition was still very prominent in how the living treated the dead, and some of the things that we do today after a loved one has passed away stem from the superstitions our ancestors held.

This event will take place in the circa 1811 plantation house. Guests will be guided through the various rooms of the house while various topics such as superstitions, death rituals, and how people spoke and wrote about death will be discussed. Real life stories taken from the Long Branch Archives will provide a back drop for many of the topics that will be discussed.

These special tours will take place on Friday, October 2nd, 23rd, and 30th at 8PM. Spacing is limited so call to reserve your spots!
