Join us at the Wyandotte Museums for one of our most popular events, as we celebrate the haunting traditions of times past! 
 
Your evening starts at the Ford-MacNichol Home where you’ll experience the peculiar customs of Victorian mourning as you view an authentic 19th century funeral in the parlor.  Highlights include many intriguing artifacts from Thon’s Funeral Home, which is celebrating 160 years in Wyandotte in 2017! 
 
Then, hop on board the Trolley for a trip to Mount Carmel Cemetery, where a guided walking tour will introduce you to some of Wyandotte’s most interesting citizens of the past 150 years!  Candle glow and jack-o-lanterns light your way through one of the oldest cemeteries in the Downriver area. 
          
After your adventure, enjoy light refreshments at the historic Marx Home as you learn about Victorian seances and Spritiualism. Top off your evening with a visit back to the Ford-MacNichol Home to see our charming Edwardian Hallowe’en party.
