Haunted Hearthstone: Sequential Killers of the Victorian Age - Part V

Visit Website Add to My Favorites

Hearthstone’s most popular event is back and more chilling than ever in this new theatrical performance that brings you face-to-face with Victorian serial killers.

With every room of the museum dressed for Victorian mourning as a backdrop, the tours are assembled in the lower level (please enter through the bulkhead doors in the rear of the building) where guests are greeted with live organ music (on Fridays) and the chance to view memento mori (the items that Victorians created to help them mourn including hair jewelry, post-mortem photography, and the like). The tours then take guests through the rest of the museum, led by docents playing the role of Victorian police detectives who introduce guests to their most infamous cases.

Vignettes in each room of the museum bring to life sequential killers - they weren’t called serial killers at the time - and their nefarious deeds. Based on the newspaper accounts of the day, the scenes tell about the villains, the victims, and the beginnings of our fascination with true crime. A new cast of real-life murderers are central to this year’s production along with new recountings of two famous killers… one with a direct connection to Henry Rogers, the builder of Hearthstone.
