19th Century Mourning Rituals

Drawing of skeletons in 19th century clothing labeled the Arsenic Waltz

On Monday, February 25 from 2:00-3:00 PM, Lysa Stanton of the Westlake Historical Society will discuss 19th Century mourning rituals and how our ancestors understood the grieving process. Some of these rituals may sound familiar to us and many will strike us as a little out of the ordinary.
