Unveiling Victorian Weddings, Customs and Courtship

The Gibraltar Historical Association created its initial Victorian wedding exhibit at the Alexander Noble House Museum using borrowed gowns from a sister historical group, but since then, more items have been added and donated to the collection, including five new gowns that have never been displayed before. They date prior to 1920, and most are of fine silk or include netting and lace. Many have a corresponding bridal photo, and some have veils with extremely fragile netting.

The exhibit has also expanded through adding a room that focuses on courtship etiquette.The museum, 4167 Main St. in Fish Creek, is open Tuesday-Sunday, 10 am – 3 pm. The admission cost of $5 includes a docent-led tour. Call ahead for group tours, and visit to find out more.
