Victorian Seance Series

October 16, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - October 25, 2015 @ 12:00 am

Join us at Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village for a night of frights as we celebrate Halloween with a Victorian Séance Series. These programs are being designed especially for BNHV by Joel Dombrowski of www.BuffaloHistoryTours.com.  For four nights in October we will be learning about how Spiritualism impacted our community in the 19th century. Each evening will include a guest medium and you will have an opportunity to be included in a 19th century-style séance. Space is very limited, so please, give us a call at (716) 689-1440 or visit us at bnhv.org to make your reservation today! Come spook out some specters at BNHV! You can also make your reservation online at bnhv.org/event/seance.

Our 10/24 seance will take place in a historic building which is not handicap accessible. For more information about our museum’s accessibility, please contact us at (716) 689-1440.
