For the second year in a row, the Seton Shrine in Emmitsburg, Md., brings history to life with its living history tour, Catherine Comes Home. The tour has changed this year, focusing on Elizabeth Ann Seton’s inspirational life, as seen through the eyes of her daughter Catherine, and other beloved friends.
On the tour, visitors will step back into 1842 and get a glimpse into mid-19th century life as they tour the grounds and historic sites with a guide. The experience takes visitors inside each historic home at the Shrine, the first dated from 1750 and the second from 1810. Through an interpreter, attendees will learn about Elizabeth Ann Seton’s life, how the homes were used in her lifetime, and how the homes are used in the 1840’s time period.
