1897 Poe House Dressed in Mourning

Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex - 1897 Poe House
Museum Hours in Description

The 1897 Poe House is dressed in mourning. Dixie Poe Sutton, one of the Poes' six daughters, died after giving birth in 1913, and it is likely the family held her wake in the house.

In conjunction with this event is the Museum of the Cape Fear's ongoing exhibition, Parlor to Parlor: Funeral Traditions of the Cape Fear, 1850 – 1950, examining funerary practices in late-19th/early-20th century North Carolina.

Museum Hours: Tuesday - Saturday, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.; Sunday, 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
