The Vintage Clothing Exhibit at the Jane Young House will be open to the public Saturday, July 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at a cost of $5 per person.

On display are four rooms full of bridal attire and accessories worn and used by brides in the past. Dresses from the Dodge family, Linda Singer, the Hillyer girls, Ann Struchen, Charlotte Sherman, the Hemingway and Naden families, and many other local contributors are a part of the current exhibit, “Weddings Through The Years.”

These gowns, dresses, and suits cover the decades beginning in the early 1900’s to the present. Along with the showing of the exhibit, visitors will tour and learn about the Jane Young House and its original residents, Jane and Kendall Young.
