Good Grief Tours


On Saturday, October 26, explore funeral traditions and rituals throughout history on this unique guided tour through Moreston Heritage Village. Participate in a toast (and a prank) during a lively 1850s Irish Wake. Formally prepare for the serious business of death with a Victorian family in the 1880s. Learn about the evolution of mourning through the Great War and the 20th century. Hear tales of Grey County ghost stories, and keep watch for loose spirits in the village!

Non-member tour guest price: $13  |  Grey Roots Member tour guest price: $10

We recommend you arrive a few minutes early, as tours will start promptly. You can enjoy a tarot card reading courtesy of Kaitlyn O'Neill while you wait, or if you get hungry, the Great Canadian BBQ will be here all day with hot beverages and snacks to purchase!
