Dinner With The Departed

Dinner with the Departed

Join us for one night only as we host an exclusive dinner in honor of the departed Woodruff and Fontaine family members while exploring a fascinating and bizarre Victorian mourning custom known as a “BACKWARD SUPPER.”

The evening will begin in the club rooms of the mansion’s cellar with a short presentation about the history of the backward supper tradition while enjoying pre-dinner cocktails provided by Old Dominick Distillery before savoring a three-course meal held in true Victorian mourning fashion. While dining in an intimate setting, history will come alive with each course. As a finish to the evening, guests will stroll the darkened rooms and hallways of the mansion on a guided tour, listening as the secrets of those who lived and died within her storied walls are revealed. FIrst-hand accounts of the paranormal occurrences that have become the Woodruff Fontaine House legacy are waiting to be divulged!
