Morbid Curiosities: Discovering the Peculiar and Unfamiliar

October 24 – November 18, 2017

Morbid Curiosities: Discovering the Peculiar and Unfamiliar a new temporary exhibit that showcases artifacts that, at first glance, may make skin crawl and heads turn. The three different themes being covered are Victorian Mourning practices, medical practices from the past and “creepy” dolls. The exhibit will not simply be a chance for people to gawk at the strange and unfamiliar (but gawking is encouraged). The goal of the exhibit is to help visitors learn more about these artifacts and why, at the time the objects were created, they were not seen as spooky or strange.

The exhibit was on display on the main level of Evergreen House. It ran from October 24 until November 18.
