Wedding apparel on display

Farm Forum

Wedding attire on display in Gettysburg covers a 60-year time period, from 1894 to 1954.

The five wedding dresses and men’s jackets show the change in styles over the period. The Dakota Sunset Museum assembled the exhibit, “Tying the Knot,” with the wedding season in mind.

The exhibit includes an elegant 1894 bridal outfit and groom’s jacket, which belonged to Pris Bown’s grandparents, and a lace wedding dress and veil worn by Caroline Titze in 1954.

The exhibit also features some early 1900s wedding invitations and pictures, a Bible given to Solomon and Elizabeth Frankhauser on their marriage in 1867, an engagement dress with an ostrich feathered hat and a going-away suit.

The wedding apparel will be on display for the next few months. Museum hours are from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free. For more information, call 605-765-9480.
