Exhibit Reception: Fancy Goods
Join us for a reception for the latest exhibit in our Local History Gallery. Free admission and refreshments.
Fancy Goods: Hats and Fashion Accessories, 1850-1950 is curated by the Middletown Springs Historical Society
Fancy goods were designed to appeal to taste or fancy rather than what was essential. The primarily ornamental fashion items in this exhibit document what residents of Middletown Springs considered fancy goods. The approximately 30 items, which date from 1850 to 1950, were donated to the Middletown Springs Historical Society collection by local families.
