Sit down for James Ross' last meal before his execution on April 22, 1856. Ross was executed for the murder of Mrs. Elizabeth Sayer, the very first execution behind the walls of the Geelong Gaol. Ross' execution was one of the first in Victoria following the change of law to make executions a private affair in place of the public spectacle they had been.
Dinner in the shadow of the gallows, will be followed by the story on how Ross came to spend his final days here at Geelong Gaol, how executioners performed their ghastly duties and what happened to the bodies of those who had been executed. See the length of the hangmans rope, and what was included in the Executioners Box.
Do you have what it takes to walk in Ross' last footsteps and "Taste History"
