A Path at the Rockwood Park.

Enjoy a brunch buffet of assorted fruits, cheeses, pastries and sandwiches with Mimosas, wine, iced tea and lemonade. Our circulating models will present attire that showcases the evolution of fashion from Post Civil War into the Roaring 20’s. Each ensemble will represent how apparel coincided with women’s fight for equality, socio-economic changes of the Progressive Era and women’s contributions to US Industry and war efforts. Stop and see exhibits of historic uniforms, paper dress patterns and learn about the health hazards of extreme corsetry. Although Mansion tours are not included, we welcome you to tour our new Apothecary Sensory Garden and receive your free gift of wildflower seeds and Votes for Women Suffragette propaganda button.
