Welcome to Penny Dreadful’s Morgue. A place to come to hear tales of the strange, the paranormal and the downright creepy. Greed, murder, revenge, obsession. The motives of gas-lit murders are universal and timeless and are generally tightly bound to a particular era…uniquely the 19th century where Penny Dreadful was born. Join me as we unearth and bring back from the dead some classic folklore and horror from days past.
The first morgue in New York City, opened in 1866 at Bellevue Hospital.
