The Geauga County Historical Society cordially invites the public to attend the Grand Opening of its 2017 costume exhibition, titled The Best of the Best.
Each costume to be exhibited has been selected from the Society’s extensive collection of antique and vintage clothing. The featured items will consist of articles of clothing made as early as the 1830’s and as recently as the 1970’s.
The Grand Opening will take place on Saturday, May 20, 2017, from 12 noon until 4 p.m.
Advance reservations are required.
The program will take place in the Society’s exhibit space in the Law House and in the Church on the Green, both buildings located on the grounds of Century Village Museum in Burton, Ohio. The speaker for the day will be Dixie Lee Davis; her talk is titled “Fashion Trends Through the Years.”
The talk will be given at noon, followed by a luncheon at 1 p.m., and a tour of the exhibit around 2 p.m.
The Exhibit and Grand Opening has been created by the Textile Committee of the Society. The cost of the program is $30 per person, with the proceeds benefiting the Committee in its preservation activities and its educational efforts. Seating is limited so please consider making your reservation as soon as possible.
The exhibit will continue to be available for public viewing throughout the summer and early fall of 2017 on Friday afternoons.
