The Manor in Mourning exhibit was hosted at Davies Manor in October of 2018. The pieces featured here were loaned to us by one of our docents, Virginia Shelton, who collects Victorian mourning memorabilia. This engrossing exhibit explored both the excess and imperative of mourning in the Victorian era.

Beginning Tuesday, May 19, the Davies Manor log-house museum will be open for appointment-only tours between the hours of noon and 4 p.m. Tours must be no larger than six people and will be subject to necessary spacing guidelines initiated by Davies Manor staff. The Hillwood event rental facility will also be open for small tours starting May 19. To schedule a time to tour either the museum or rental facility, please contact Cyndy Osborne at Hillwoodatdaviesmanor@gmail.com, or at (901) 386-2546. We appreciate your ongoing support of Davies Manor and look forward to the time we can safely reopen in full!
