The Victorian-era was a strange time to live in America... and a strange time to die. Come join the Norfolk Society for Cemetery Conservation every final Friday of the month, April through October, for a twilight walking tour of historic Elmwood Cemetery. Led by local historian Joshua Weinstein, the Strange Happenings Tour will focus on the funerary artwork, mourning rituals and burial practices in Victorian America. Come explore the park-like grounds of Elmwood as we discuss that era's macabre obsession with death and dying. No RSVP necessary $5 suggested donation All ages welcome Tours are weather permitting.
