JUL 29

Living History Experience - Catherine Comes Home

1842 was a pivotal year in the life of Catherine Seton, the daughter of Elizabeth Ann Seton. Catherine returned to Emmitsburg for the first time since her mother’s death in 1821 to explore her childhood home. On this living history tour, you’ll get a glimpse into mid-19th century life as you see the legacy of Elizabeth Ann Seton make a life-changing impact on her daughter.

For years, Catherine traveled the world, living an extravagant, yet unsettled life. On the tour, you’ll join Catherine on this transformational visit as she interacts with old friends and comes face-to-face with the memories and legacy of her mother, and questions about her own future.

Tour Times: 3 pm, 3:30 pm, 4 pm, 4:30 pm and 5 pm
