The Victorians loved their traditions, etiquette, and of course- a good ghost story!

Spiritualism – the belief that the dead communicate with the living- became highly popular in the in the Victorian Era, and communing with spirits became a wide spread Parlor activity.

"Dining With the Spirits"

blends history, dining, and a paranormal investigation

into a night of anticipation and wonder!


The "Dining with the Spirits" experience is uniquely satisfying. 

It fully engages the body, mind, and spirit through a multi-course meal,

a presentation on the history of Hotchkiss House, and warm engagement with any spirits on hand.

In fact, we set a place of honor for our resident spirits at their own table so they may join us at any time. 

4-course Dinner Menu:


Mediterranean Appetizer - tompanade, hummus, feta cheese & pita points


Arugula Roasted Beet Goat Cheese Salad

Entree Choice: 

Artichoke Spinach Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast

with mushroom risotto, roasted tri-color carrots, and beurre blanc sauce. 


Osso buco

with mushroom risotto & roasted tri-color carrots.


Grilled Shrimp over seared Polenta Cakes in Tasso Ham sauce

and roasted tri-color carrots.

And for dessert:  White Chocolate Orange Creme Brulee

or Chef's delicious seasonal choice dessert

On the paranormal front, a complement of digital audio recorders, alarms, REM-pods, motion detectors, K-2 Meters, DVR cameras, are poised to measure and record any activity during the dinner experience, with special attention given to the spirit(s) place setting at their table.

Then after dinner for the first time ever...

a "sneak peak investigation" of the dining room

and basement at Hotchkiss House!

(yes, Hotchkiss House has a basement!)

to (hopefully) communicate with the grumpy old man

and other spirits from the past!

Then from 8:30-10:00pm 

Lilian Place: Alive with Spirits from the Past?

Find out for yourself on an after-hours Paranormal Investigation! 

Touted by many as, “the most haunted house in Daytona Beach,” Lilian Place and the legendary ghostly activity has become a highly popular place for investigating paranormal activities — occurrences that fall outside of what’s considered normal or that can’t be explained scientifically.
