What's the most dreadful, disturbing, and downright disquieting decade ever? Hot wars, cold wars, TV beaver invasions, horror movies, lobotomies for mental health, air you could chew, and let's not forget rings that levitated around writhing bodies. Did you guess the 1950s? So did we. The Gothic History Tour proudly brings you those Fabulous Frightening Fifties!

This 90-minute walking tour is volunteer-led and benefits the non-profit Cedarburg Cultural Center. Your tour guide will provide haunting insight into Cedarburg's dark past. Be transported to a different time period by costumed actors performing vignettes. You may even bump into some interesting people stalking the streets! 

The Cedarburg Cultural Center takes social distancing and the recommendations of the CDC and Ozaukee County Health Department very seriously. Tour sizes have been minimized to ensure social distancing and safety. In compliance with current CDC guidance, the Center does require masks or face coverings, regardless of vaccination status, in all indoor CCC areas.
