New Exhibit Coming to Rugby in October
“Rugby Edged in Black” will examine the death and mourning customs of the Victorian era through the death of Margaret Hughes on October 5, 1887. Hear funeral hymns and Appalachian dirges while residents mourn her passing. Learn how death affected the Victorians and how their customs still move us today by walking through Kingstone Lisle as it would have looked at her death 130 years ago. This exhibit will also coincide with “Ghostly Gathering” which has consistently been one of Rugby’s most popular events, on October 19 and 26. “Rugby Edged in Black” will run from October 3-October 31, 2019.
