Lantern-Led Walk Through Historic Downtown Marietta!

Join us as we step off the beaten path to explore 1850’s mourning practices and superstitions about death. The Root House, home to Marietta’s first druggist, is the oldest surviving frame house in Downtown Marietta. Hannah and William Root shared the house with Leonard Simpson, Hannah’s father, who passed away on October 11, 1856. Come see the home dressed in mourning as it would have been at the time of Mr.Simpson’s death. Curtains will be drawn and rooms adorned with black crepe and ribbons. Once we have thoroughly explored the home we will carry on our lantern led walk through historic Marietta.
