This heritage tour will explore the history of the lumber and funerary industries as they were presented in Alison Bechdel's graphic memoir, Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic. The 1880s gothic revival home where the story takes place serves as a connector between her personal narrative and the histories of these two important industries in Pennsylvania.
