Spiritualism in the Victorian Era
521 Villa Louis Rd, Prairie du Chien, WI 53821
Experience Villa Louis in a new, spine-tingling way! Victorians were fascinated by death and finding ways to connect with their former friends and loved ones through the “Great Beyond.”
Enjoy a tasty cordial and hear tales of the Fox sisters, credited with the creation of the spiritualist movement in America, and learn about Whitewater’s Morris Pratt Institute, the country’s first spiritualist school. More than an occult parlor game, spiritualism was a new religion that channeled the voices of the dead, linked the present with the past, and conjured new worldly and otherworldly futures. Cordial and petit fours will be served.
This event also includes a special look at spiritualist objects once owned by Mrs. Dousman not usually on display.
