Dinner with the Departed

October 8, 7pm-10pm

YOU CAN'T REFUSE A FORMAL DINNER REQUEST FROM OUR SPIRITS!

Join us for one night only as we host an exclusive dinner in honor of the departed Woodruff and Fontaine family members while exploring the fascinating and bizarre Victorian mourning customs.

The evening will begin in the club rooms of the mansion’s cellar with pre-dinner cocktails provided by Old Dominick Distillery before savoring a three-course meal held in true Victorian mourning fashion. While dining in an intimate setting, history will come alive with each course. As a finish to the evening, guests will stroll the darkened rooms and hallways of the mansion on a guided tour, listening as the secrets of those who lived and died within her storied walls are revealed. FIrst-hand accounts of the paranormal occurrences that have become the Woodruff Fontaine House legacy are waiting to be divulged!

"Houses are like people, some you like and some you don't like...

and once in a while, there is one you love."
