Event Details

On Thursday, January 30, the Bellamy Mansion Museum will host Dr. Kimberly Sherman as she speaks about the 1862 Yellow Fever epidemic in Wilmington.

Already engulfed in wartime, Wilmington society found itself shattered by sickness and death. Dr. Sherman’s lecture will focus on the social impact of the Yellow Fever epidemic, including mourning and burial practices in the nineteenth century.

Doors open at 6:00 pm and will close when the lecture begins at 6:30 pm. Seating is on a first come, first served basis. There is a $5 suggested donation.
