Lima Historical Society presents talk on 19th Century Ladies Fashions

Imagine life at a slower pace in a different time and different place. Life was vastly different for our sisters of the past. On Tuesday, November 14th at 7 pm., the Lima Historical Society will host a demonstration and illustrated talk on 19th century ladies’ clothing by historic clothing expert and seamstress, Jenny Honan. She will speak about changes in the fashions in vogue and the methods of construction of women’s dresses during the mid to late 1800’s. Besides being an interpreter at Genesee Country Village and Museum, Ms. Honan sews for several of our local museums and enjoys being a Civil War re-enactor.
The demonstration will be held at the Lima Court House. Come and hear about civilian life and ladies fashions from 150 years ago. This period of time is often romanticized. Come and find out why!



We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
