Living (And Barely Breathing) History In Jacksonville

Fashions of the day. Corset sold separately.

Jacksonville was born and grew into the county seat back in the Victorian days.  Even now the historic downtown does not look that different from how it looked when "good Queen Vic" was alive. 

Historic Jacksonville, Inc. spends a few days this month and next recreating those halcyon (and occasionally bizarre) times in town.  Events include people wearing Victorian clothing and recreating elaborate Victorian mourning rituals.  Grab a whalebone corset--you have one, right?--and listen as we visit with HJI President Carolyn Kingsnorth.
