Litchfield Historical Society Lecture: Fashion During CT's Colonial Revival

03/22/2015

South Street, Litchfield, CT 06759. Phone: 860-567-4501.

Join the Litchfield Historical Society on Sunday, March 22 at 3:00 p.m. for a presentation about fashion with Karen DePauw, research and collections associate at the Connecticut Historical Society. From costume balls to reproduction furniture Connecticut embodied the ideals of the Colonial Revival. Taking root during the Centennial celebrations of 1876, residents looked back at the colonial past and took to heart the simplified lives of their ancestors. Embodied by furniture and fashion designs, as well as social clubs and entertainments, the Colonial Revival Movement grew to extremes in Connecticut, and the New England Region. Explore this period of Connecticut's history through what it created and what inspired it. Prior to the lecture, visitors are invited to view The Lure of the Litchfield Hills exhibit, which features what prompted the Colonial Revival Movement, how the residents of Litchfield embraced their ancestral past, and how the community came to look the way it does today. Call to register for the lecture.
