The Merchant's House, where I am a volunteer, continues its annual tradition of exhibiting nineteenth-century mourning customs, as well as celebrating the ghosts that make it "Manhattan's most haunted house," according to the New York Times. 

In addition to the mourning exhibition that runs through the end of October, there will be ghost tours, a lecture on paranormal investigation, a seance, and a funeral reenactment. During this last event, I will be reprising my role as Gertrude Tredwell, the youngest Tredwell daughter.
