This fall the Ximenez-Fatio House Museum is excited to present the return of our annual Twilight Tour! This years theme and title is: “The Ximenez-Fatio House Presents: Mourning and Mortality – A Century of Death.” Enjoy a guided spooky candlelight tour through our 223-year-old Historic House Museum and 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. This is a family-friendly nighttime activity for anyone looking to get into the Halloween spirit!
“Mourning and Mortality” tours will take place every Friday and Saturday during the month of October at 5:30pm, 6:30pm, and 7:30pm. Tickets are $15.00 per person. New for this year – combination daytime “Everyday Life” and “Mourning and Mortality” tour tickets can be purchased for just $20.00 per person! More information about Paranormal Investigations is available at our website. Online reservations in advance are required.
