“Wedding Dresses Through the Decades”

Stories of our community will come to life through wedding gowns on display at Oaklands Mansion, where every dress tells a love story. Step back into time and experience the common threads that weave together the lives of women as we explore women’s history, fashion history, cultural history and the history of our community. Over fifty gowns have been placed on loan and exhibited, most for the first time. The “Wedding Dresses Through the Decades” exhibit in Maney Hall at Oaklands Mansion takes place from January 17 through March 1, 2020.


Princess Night on January 24th in the exhibit is open from 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. and is a come-and-go event. Tickets include admission to the wedding dress exhibit and princess crafts.
