Enjoy a brunch buffet of assorted fruits, cheeses, pastries and sandwiches with Mimosas, wine, iced tea and lemonade. Our circulating models will present attire that showcases the evolution of fashion from Post Civil War into the Roaring 20’s. Each ensemble will represent how apparel coincided with women’s fight for equality, socio-economic changes of the Progressive Era and women’s contributions to US Industry and war efforts. Stop and see exhibits of historic uniforms, paper dress patterns and learn about the health hazards of extreme corsetry.

Rockwood Park’s 72 acres encompass meadows and woodlands with historic and community gardens, wildlife habitats, framed by Turkey Run and Shellpot Creek. There is a pond, historic buildings and a house museum. Many trees and plantings date back the 19th century when estate creator, Joseph Shipley, designed a garden based on the principals of Victorian Gardenesque.
