Halloween 2014 with a dose of history: Yellow Fever Comes to Savannah @ Davenport House, October

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Yellow Fever drama at Davenport Museum SavannahTake your kids (ages 8 & older) to a live history lesson/true ghost story this October 2014. Savannah’s historic Davenport House presents “Dreadful Pestilence: Savannah’s Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1820.” More info here.

Friday and Saturday nights in October 2014
PROGRAM DATES: October 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25 & 31
TIMES: 7:30 p.m. and 8:45 p.m.

ADMISSION: $15 in advance for adults, $10 in advance children (ages 8-17) and $17 for adults and $15 for children at the time of the performance
Reservations recommended. Limited attendance. Call: 912/236-8097

LENGTH OF PROGRAM: 60 minutes
Participants in the living history performance experience the story of yellow fever’s dreadful consequences which transformed the bustling seaport of Savannah into a ghost town. The action commences with a war of words between competing local newspapers on the fever’s outbreak and the municipal action that follows. Moving through the house and garden by candlelight, visitors observe the 19th century inhabitants as their thoughts turn to the contemplation of their own mortality and witness a doctor’s treatment of a fever victim. In an area seldom seen by visitors, the fate and experiences of the uncounted half to the city’s population, both free and enslaved Africans, are revealed. As a culmination each visitor will participate in a “Lottery of Life and Death.”

Not suitable for children younger than 8 years of age.

The performance requires that guests be able to walk up and down stairs and maneuver in the candlelit rooms.

Davenport House, 324 E State St, Savannah, 31401, (912) 236-8097, http://www.davenporthousemuseum.org/category/events/
