The Ticonderoga Historical Society is set to host a free program entitled “Victorian Spirit Photography: Beyond the Veil” on Friday, September 21 at 7 pm at the Hancock House, 6 Moses Circle, Ticonderoga.
People living in the Victorian era (1837-1901) showed interest in psychic phenomena, seances, spiritualism, ghost photography and other forms of communications beyond the living world. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert took part in seances and well-known author Arthur Conan Doyle was also a believer, as was English poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning. This program will look at the history and help attendees understand why that took place and how it continues in the modern world.
Reservations are not necessary to attend this free program and refreshments will be served. Additional information is available by calling (518) 585-7868 or via e-mail to [email protected]
