Tours at Victoria Mansion have always included the Morses and the Libbys, but there was another group who also lived here – their domestic servants. For many years, we knew only minimal information about them. Recently, however, research through the Backstairs Lives Initiative has led to some interesting discoveries about the people who worked for these two families.

Members are invited to join us for a special opportunity to hear about the Mansion as a workplace, not just a home. Who were the people who worked here? Where did they come from? Where did they work and where did they live? This tour will include spaces not usually on public view.

Light refreshments will be served for guests at this event. Due to limited capacity in the featured spaces, RSVPs are required. Members – keep an eye on your email inboxes for RSVP details.

Want to join as a Member, or need to renew? Visit our Membership page or give us a call at (207) 772-4841 ext.111.
