Travelling Hall of Oddities
The Battle of Richmond Association is sponsoring a rather unique and special event during Halloween season, Professor Mortimer T. Beazley’s Travelling Hall of Oddities.
During the mid 19th century, many travelling carnivals and side shows came to small towns like Richmond, featuring spectacles supposedly from far away lands. One of the most famous was P.T. Barnum.
As a fun alternative to the scary Halloween events, Professor Mortimer T. Beazley’s Travelling Hall of Oddities will give visitors a more comedic and historic event. Oddities will include a fortune teller, Siamese twins and the notorious “Man Eating Chicken”.
The show will be held from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm and 8:30 pm to 10:00 pm on Friday and Saturday, October 29 & 30, at the Pleasant View House at Battlefield Park.
