Victorian Mourning at the Holliday Dorsey Fife Museum October 16

Once you hear how many occasions and how often women during the Victorian Age had to wear black and remain in mourning, you'll rejoice that those old customs are not in vogue. Of course, it made picking out clothing really simple. 

October 16
11 am

Holliday Dorsey Fife Museum
140 W Lanier Ave
Fayetteville, GA

Travel back centuries to the Victorian Age on October 16.  Come see and hear Betty English and Carolyn Balog share the past as they discuss mourning rituals, clothing and jewelry. 

Reservations are required, but there is no extra fee to see this fantastic glimpse into the past.  The presentation is included with the price of the Museum entry fee.

With a love of history that runs back to the American Revolution, English and Balog are members of the James Waldrop Chapter DAR in Fayetteville.
