Savannah was the location of tragic yellow fever outbreaks. In 1820 the city’s outbreak was widespread. This October, see a newly imagined historical recreation of Savannah’s dreadful Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1820 with particular emphasis on Georgia’s first female physician, Mary Lavinder, the destination of the soul and images of medical techniques of the period presented in a magic lantern setting. Not suitable for children under 12 years of age. The performance requires that guests be able to walk up and down stairs and maneuver in the candlelit rooms.
