Friends of the Victor's hosted a party Friday night for Leonora and Brian and their out of town guests. Vernon Hall was built in 1847. The Owners bought it about 20 years ago and started renovating the property to its current glory. The front staircases are representative of southern entrances. Women would go up one side of the staircase and men would use the other. If a man looked at a woman's ankles, they could be forced to marry. It helped to have the women go up their own staircase as well because of the big bustle on the back of their skirts and the hoops.
