Join us each Saturday October 9 through November 6 at 10am for a special tour about Death and Dying in the North Carolina backcountry! The tour will explore the place of death in everyday life for families like the Polks, common diseases and associated herbal remedies, as well as burial rites and rituals for Scotts-Irish settlers and enslaved African-Americans. Look through the Main House, Kitchen House and garden, and discover our family cemetery! This tour will cover about 1/4 mile, and we recommend wearing sturdy walking shoes. Tickets are $7/person and are available to preorder.
What's this, what's this?! It's the wildly inventive world of Tim Burton's macabre classic The Nightmare Before Christmas™ shown in its entirety on a large screen at Belk Theater. Danny Elfman's rambunctious, colorful score will roar to life in the hands of your Charlotte Symphony as you follow Jack the Pumpkin King's quest to seize Christmas on a large screen above the orchestra.
