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.
