Sequential Killers: The Victorian Terror Part II
Hearthstone Historic House Museum will once again feature their Haunted Hearthstone season with a whole new theme: Sequential Killers: The Victorian Terror Part II. We will present a theatrical glimpse into the 19th century beginnings of serial murder investigation through the eyes of victims, detectives, and the perpetrators who stalked them. The presentations will feature a walk-through tour of Hearthstone, decorated for mourning in the Victorian era, with many of the rooms each depicting a different character scene. The event is being held Friday and Saturday nights and on Halloween in October, with one-hour continuous presentations from 6pm to 9pm.
The Haunted Hearthstone events have been growing in popularity, providing guests with different themes each year. “Because we change the events every year, the same guests can return for something completely new, and this year’s theme could very well prove to be the best yet”, said George Schroeder, Hearthstone Executive Director. “By putting on a more elaborate staged production, we appeal to those that are looking for more than simply a good scare. We offer a real look into the past which is, in some ways, because of its authenticity, much scarier. Add the decorations of a Victorian mourning to Hearthstone, and you have the perfect setting for a Halloween season event.”
Tickets are available at the door or online at www.hearthstonemusum.org. Proceeds for the events go toward the operational budget for Hearthstone Historic House Museum.
