Come one, come all, to catch a glimpse of Oswego as it was in 1905... A time of turbulent changes, growing pains, and a rise in a movement of spirits, seances, and speaking with the dead.
A Haunting History will feature fear-filled activities to learn more about the culture of death in the early 20th century, refreshments of the most spooky order, a sneak peak at our new exhibit on death & dying, and an Edwardian reenactment of a seance. Guests will discover the tricks of the trade, get a behind the scene look at these spiritual performances, and discover the strange ways our relationship with death has changed.
OHC will also be collecting YOUR ghost stories from around Lake Oswego. Want to submit them early?Submit your ghost story here.
Guests are invited to dress-up and embrace the experience for its unique engagement of history but to recognize that it is a reenactment meant to educate. No spirits will actually be summoned. This event is best for children over the age of 12, but because of the subject matter, please use your best judgment.
