Woe Is Me: A Tour of Tragic Tales

September 24 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm CDT

History can be untimely.

“Killed in a laboratory explosion due to the carelessness of others.” Yes, you read that right. One of Elmwood’s most notable monuments reads like a cautionary tale.

There are others. One man was lost at sea in 1903. Or was he pushed? One child drowned in the Court Square fountain in 1884 in broad daylight. And in 1935, another Elmwood resident fell off a mountain…

Are you a fan of Edward Gorey? This is the tour for you! Join Elmwood staffer Amanda Zorn for this 90 minute walk though history and melancholy. Bring your tissues for this one!

Cost is $20; registration is required.
