Victorian Mourning

August 14, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The Victorian Era brought to America many unusual customs for mourning the deceased.  Lynchburg residents – including children – followed national trends and wore special clothing and jewelry for a very long time after a loved one had passed.  Historian Judith Harvey will share the customs and the history behind them in this special tour.
