    Step back in time to 1842 with Catherine Seton, Elizabeth Ann Seton’s only surviving daughter.

    In 1842, Catherine comes home for the first time since her mother’s death in 1821. Prior to this visit, Catherine lived a worldly, extravagant life. She returned to Emmitsburg in 1842, intending it to be a brief visit, but it becomes so much more as she grapples with the memories and legacy of her mother. With a guide, you’ll join Catherine as she explores her childhood home for the first time in 21 years. You’ll get a glimpse of mid-19th-century life as you witness the powerful life and legacy of Elizabeth Ann Seton through her daughter’s eyes.

    Don’t miss this chance to see a legacy of faith, hope, and charity brought to life! Tours take place between 3-5pm.
