American Séance

Spirit rapping, ghostly instruments, and other attempts at communion with the dead were once common occurrences in American parlors. 

People from every social strata attended séances where mediums purported to be in contact with departed spirits. During the Civil War thousands desperate to contact fallen loved ones enlisted the aid of a medium. What would they have experienced at one of these sittings?

Find out at Historic Tredegar when we present a historically accurate séance inspired by the Spiritualist movement.

Join us October 28th - November 1st for this mysterious evening’s entertainment. Our story centers on Mr. and Mrs. Nelson as they seek to communicate to their son who lost his life during the Civil War.
