HOF Members Only Event: Victorian Death and Mourning Traditions

Event Date:

Sunday, January 21 at 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM


Beth Dolgner is an author, editor, writer and longtime Historic Oakland Foundation volunteer. Over the past decade, Beth has written about everything from motorcycle reviews to ghost stories through her work in journalism, public relations, and marketing. Beth is also the author of Georgia Spirits and Specters, a collection of Georgia ghost stories; Everyday Voodoo; and the Betty Boo, Ghost Hunter paranormal romance series.

On Sunday, January 21 and again on Sunday, January 28 Dolgner will lead a discussion about Victorian death and mourning traditions, and how they relate to Historic Oakland Cemetery.

Death was a constant companion for the Victorians, whose passion for passing created lasting reminders of the dearly departed. From mourning wear to glass-topped coffins to communing with the dead, this Members Only Event explores the ways Victorians kept their dead from ever being forgotten.

The event begins with hors d’oeurves and beverages in the Bobby Jones Room, followed by Beth’s presentation.

This event is for Members Only and is limited to 30 persons. Tickets are available in advance only.
Cost per member: $20

Please note the Sunday, January 21 date is SOLD OUT. An additional event has been added on Sunday, January 28.
