About the Tour
An untimely death has occured and the XF House has gone into mourning. During this after-hours candlelight tour of the museum, learn about the ways St. Augustine townsfolk of the 1800’s practiced medicine and mourning rituals from Spanish-American last rites, Victorian Spiritualism, to Afro-Caribbean practices. Learn how illnesses were treated with at-home remedies from our colonial garden and original 1798 kitchen. A rotation of guest storytellers will share their spookiest short story with guests, as well.
