The year is 1865: the Civil War ends, Lincoln is assassinated, and the Tredwell family is in deep mourning after the death of patriarch Seabury Tredwell. These uneasy times fueled wide-spread belief in mysticism and the supernatural and wealthy New Yorkers like the Tredwells hosted neighbors and friends to showcase the latest in psychic entertainments.

We invite you to join renowned mentalist Kent Axell in the family’s Greek Revival double parlor as he takes us back in time to experience mind reading, magic, and mystery. Whether he answers your sealed questions, reads your mind — or controls it — you’re guaranteed to feel the haunting touch of one of history’s most obscure, and awe-inspiring, art forms.

A reception with Mr. Axell follows.
