During October, museum visitors will experience the Root House as it would have been following a death in the household. Curtains will be drawn, and rooms will be adorned with black crepe and ribbons. In addition, visitors can view 19th-century embalming equipment, mourning jewelry made from human hair, and other curious artifacts related to death and mourning in the Victorian era.
