||BRADFORD COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY TO PRESENT A WEDDING GOWN
The Bradford County Historical Society will officially open an exhibit
of wedding gowns and wedding memorabilia on June 17, from 6:30 to 8:30
p.m. The museum in the old jail on Pine street, Towanda, has an impressive
collection of gowns and wedding attire that dates back to the early 1800s.
The wedding dress Jane Edlin wore at her marriage to Chenick VanCuren Bush
dates back to 1829.
Among the unusual historic attire are the wedding pants of Daniel
F. Heverly, from his wedding in 1850. A gown worn by Lucinda Welles
in 1865, when she married Joel Culkin, will also be on display.
Several other notable gowns from the 19th century on display are
the 1874 dress of Emma Feiss who married Henry G. Farley, as well as Clara
Hollenstein's lovely 1890 dress. Two dresses donated by Bethel Nichols--her
grandmother's 1898 dress, and her mother's 1926 dress--are on exhibit together.
Wedding dresses are not the only things on display. In addition to
the gowns, some exhibits show veils, hose, and even the shoes worn by the
brides. Many of the exhibits have pictures to accompany the attire,
in addition to written accounts of the weddings.
There are several wedding gowns from the 20th century, too, including
Frances Chaffee's 1914 gown and shoes,and the wedding hose and veil from
Belle Florence Barnard from 1904. There are more modern dresses as
well, as well as wedding certificates, and memorabilia from Bradford County
Several of the members of the Bradford County Museum's Board of Directors
have agreed to display their own wedding pictures. The public may
be surprised at how good looking these people used to be!
In addition to the wedding attire, a wedding punch will be served
from the famous Bennett Estate punch bowl, and light refreshment will be
served. The public is invited to attend the evening bridal show.
This is the first of what is hoped to be several evening events at the
museum, and officially opens the summer season at the museum. The
public is invited to bring their wedding pictures and memories to share.
There is no admission charge for the program, but voluntary donations will
