“Oaklands is the perfect example of a hands-on teaching tool. Rotating exhibitions allow us to alternately show the joy and the pain experienced on the plantation. Mourning customs exploration allows us to show what a drastic cultural change our society has experienced when grieving the loss of a loved one,” says Mary Beth Nevills, Education Director of Oaklands Mansion.
Be sure to enjoy other events at the mansion such as, Flashlight Nights which will take place Thursday, Friday & Saturday, October 24th through 26th from 7:00-10:00 p.m. Mourning tours will come to an end on Halloween night as the mansion is set to receive visitors for Trick-or-Treating at 4:00 p.m. until all the candy has been given away. Visit our website and Facebook page for times and ticket information for all of these spooky events.
