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.
All events are sponsored by the Southern Memorial Association.
