Old Sturbridge Village presents Haunted by History: A Phantasmagoria, October 18-29, 2017 during the Village's regular open hours. Guests gather outside The Center Meeting House where they meet Dr. Lantornia, a mysterious showman who promises them he can conjure spirits from New England's past in his "Phantasmagoria." He leads them into the darkened meeting house, where they participate in a séance, encountering the ghosts of several New England figures who died in the 19th century with unfinished business, including abolitionist writer Lydia Maria Child, millionaire industrialist Samuel Colt, decorated naval officer Commodore Mathew Perry, Zerah "The Human Calculator" Colburn and prison reform activist Dorothea Dix. The séance goes awry when we find out all is not as it seems and Dr. Lantornia has ulterior motives for his Phantasmagoria. Read more about the characters here.
