In February of 1842 the Northeast Tennessee region mourned the loss of Elizabeth MacLin Carter, the namesake of Elizabethton and widow of Brigadier General Landon Carter. Near the anniversary of Elizabeth’s death, the public is invited to join museum curator Chad Bogart for a special after-hours tour of the Carter Mansion, Tennessee’s oldest frame house, and learn about the strange and somewhat bizarre customs, rituals, and superstitions surrounding death, mourning, and funerals in early America.
The John and Landon Carter Mansion is located at 1031 Broad St.
The event will take place Feb. 17 and 18 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The price of admission is $12.
Registration is required.
