Vintage clothing exhibit ‘Enchant’ on display at Ash Hollow SHP

November 6, 2019 Jerry Kane

LINCOLN, Neb. – Each Saturday and Sunday in November, guests at Ash Hollow State Historical Park can view a high-end vintage clothing exhibit, “Enchant,” featuring handmade beadwork and embroidery.

The clothing line extends from the 1880s to the 1980s and is an interactive, hands-on presentation that invites guests to touch and feel the craftsmanship of the garment.

“Garden County has a long standing tradition of dressmaking and dressmakers,” Park Superintendent Tamara Cooper said. “Many of the items and dresses were collected locally by women who have since passed on.”

The exhibit is open each Saturday and Sunday in November from noon to 5 p.m. The cost is $5 per person. On Dec. 1, the event will wrap up with an open house from 4-7 p.m. and a style show where some of the dresses will be modeled. Finger hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be provided.

A park entry permit is required. For more information, contact the park office at 308-778-5651.
