The Grosse Pointe Historical Society is so grateful to
board member Russell Peebles for his donation of a
hand-made wool blanket dating back to the Civil War.
The blanket belonged to Peebles’ mother, Florence
Houston Peebles. It was made by Florence’s two
maiden aunts who lived in Blacksburg, VA. Florence
lived with them for a while when she was a child,
after her mother died. They gave her the blanket
which she then passed on to Russell. It is a wonderful
addition to the Provencal-Weir House.
