Get in the spirit of Halloween with a fall-themed Taste Traditions! Presented by historian Carol Lohry Cartwright, learn about the Spiritualist movement that swept the country in the late 1880s and lead to the building of the Second Empire-style "Temple of Science" in Whitewater, Wisconsin. Myths of witches and occult happenings in town are still fostered by University of Whitewater students. How are these myths related to the Temple of Science and how did they evolve into what they are today? Join us and find out!
