Victorian Funeral

historic interpreters with casket at cemetery

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Absent but dear…

Saturday, October 5 • 1 p.m.

All activities included with General Admission

In 1876, the funeral was a pageant of honored traditions. Families gathered to find joy in a public celebration of a life well-lived. Join our historic interpreters as they celebrate the life and honor the death of a fictional Walnut Hill resident with a re-created funeral.

In the morning, visit the Tangen Home, prepared with a period-style coffin and funeral drapery. The funeral begins at 1 p.m. in the side yard of the Tangen Home, then continues with a procession of the horse-drawn hearse through town to New Hope Cemetery, where there the ceremony will conclude.

In case of rain, the entire ceremony will be at the Tangen Home.
