Death and Dying: A Guided Tour - November 6

Death and Dying

Event Description

Join us each Saturday October 9 through November 6 at 10am for a special tour about Death and Dying in the North Carolina backcountry! The tour will explore the place of death in everyday life for families like the Polks, common diseases and associated herbal remedies, as well as burial rites and rituals for Scotts-Irish settlers and enslaved African-Americans. Look through the Main House, Kitchen House and garden, and discover our family cemetery! This tour will cover about 1/4 mile, and we recommend wearing sturdy walking shoes. Tickets are $7/person and are available to preorder
