Ace of Clubs House & Ahern Home, 420 Pine Street, Texarkana, Texas 75501

Exhibit featuring burial customs and mourning during the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

Per the facebook site: “Gracefully Southern: Mourning Customs of the Victorian South” is open at the Ace of Club House. Paired with “Gracefully Southern: Mourning Customs of the Edwardian South” at Ahern house, they will look at funeral beliefs and traditions in the Victorian and post WWI era, with both houses dressed to appear as if a family member has recently died. Open until the 31st October.

Although found before this, jewelry made from or incorporating hair of an individual became common in the Victorian period. Initially made by companies, later instruction guides were produced to allow people to produce items own at home – allowing people confidence that the hair was from the individual they wanted rather than substituted by the business (and making it affordable). Although made for regular wear, these items could also be designed as mourning jewelry, using the hair of a recently deceased close family member, and worn as a memento of that individual. For more information on this, see

This program was made possible in part with a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
