Today, we look at Victorian life as dull, conservative, and strict, but constricting fashions were only the beginning. Learn about your ancestors and how their odd hobbies, food, and entertainment made what appeared to be a boring life, instead, one of fashionable fun that could border on bizarre.
All programs begin at 10:00am and are held in the Thomas Room, on the second floor of the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library (444 Mahoning Avenue NW, Warren, Ohio).
The Sutliff Museum will be open for tours following the program.
All programs are free, open to the public, and handicapped accessible.
