Feared Weird

Hair wreaths, crying dolls, secret windows, a rib cage shower, post-mortem photography, and a parlor game that involved setting fire to brandy…there were some strange customs in the late 19th century. Explore these tales and more on a unique after-dark tour at the 1890 House Museum and enjoy a couple of Cortland Beer Company Brews. See what was truly strange, and learn about things we might only fear as weird.
