- The Elkhart Historical Society is delighted to announce an
extraordinary “lunch and lecture” program for mothers on Saturday,
May 7th, 2016-- at Horsefeathers Wild Hare Café in Elkhart- - “What
the Well Dressed Mother Wore in the 1800’s,” to be presented by
Nancy Torgerson of Forsyth, well-known historic interpreter,
teacher, author, clothing consultant to museums, and 19th century
custom tailor and dressmaker.
Her accurate and occasionally humorous portrayal of the layers
required of the “best dressed” mothers of society will make you
thankful to be in the 21th century. Men are welcome to bring their
mothers, and may get some insight as to the extremes and equipment
required to have an 18” waist.
A special menu of spring salad with chicken and strawberries
vinaigrette, or chicken pot pie and salad, each with grilled artisan
bread and scrumptious dessert of meringue served with chocolate
mousse and berries is offered.
