Victorians embraced death as a cause for elaborate ritual.  During this era (1876-1915) the ritual of death became increasingly sophisticated and the period saw the development of the modern cemetery, morticians and public funerals complete with floral arrangements and hearse transportation for the deceased.  This program will feature a presentation on Victorian funeral and mourning customs, a first floor house tour at Black Point, and a narrated lake boat tour of maritime mishaps.  Walking and stair climbing is required for this tour.
