This Halloween have a hauntingly good time while enjoying great tea and treats. Learn about the historical importance of 19th century Victorian mourning traditions, and mourning attire while enjoying fall themed refreshments. Hear about some of the many terrifying urban legends from the Victorian era. Many of these legends were loosely based in fact and then propelled into a contentiousness of fear.
Take this opportunity to experience what Edgar Allan Poe described as, “The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?” from his work “The Premature Burial”.
