Calling all little princesses! What a better way to be a princess than to be surrounded by princess dresses. Wear your favorite dress or princess costume to the exhibit and enjoy refreshments in the museum gift shop on February 9, 2018. Tickets are $10 per person or $5 if you dress as your favorite princess and can be pre-purchased at

Murfreesboro’s own princess, Miss Tennessee Valley 2018 Kristen Perry, will be here to meet all the little princesses. She and other local real life princesses will be available to speak with guests and share about the charities they are sponsoring. This is a great opportunity to meet these spectacular young ladies!


“This is a great daddy/daughter outing, as well as grandparent’s night out and is wonderful for all ages,” said Mary Beth Nevills, Education Director of Oaklands, “Your little princess will love being the center of attention for this special evening of big fluffy dresses and tiaras that sparkle.”


“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 will be placed on loan and exhibited, most for the first time. The “Wedding Dresses Through the Decades” exhibit in Maney Hall at Oaklands Mansion will take place from January 20 through March 4, 2018.

Princess Night 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, photos with princesses, princess crafts & snacks. Tickets can be purchased online at For more information, contact Mary Beth Nevills at Oaklands (615) 893-0022 or email
