Death and Dying Tours

Saturday, October 1 through Saturday, October 29
President James K. Polk State Historic Site

Death and Dying for families in the North Carolina backcountry was an ever-present reality.

Join us each Saturday in October at 3pm as we explore the place of death in everyday life for families like the Polks, common diseases and associated herbal remedies, as well as burial rites and rituals for Scotts-Irish settlers and enslaved African-Americans. Additionally, the tour will delve into the history of the Polk Site Cemetery.

Suggested donations for this special tour are $7 for adults; $3 for seniors (62+) and children 13-18. This tour is recommended for children 13 years and older.

The tours will last around 35-40 minutes and include the Kitchen House and the Polk Family Cemetery.
