The Marquette Regional History Center presents the Special Exhibit: Victorianism in Upper Michigan

Shows & Events
10:00 AM To 05:00 PM
Location: The Marquette Regional History Center, Marquette
Members only gallery talk 6:30 p.m., September 25th at MRHC. Members have the opportunity to ask questions of the curator and take a special tour of the new exhibit at this event! See how the Queen’s long and powerful reign influenced social life in the UP in the mid to late 1800s. The growth of technology and the middle class changed the role of women in the home, bringing new domestic arts and a development of women’s hand crafts. Sentimental and ornate homes and clothing were the style, as was a strong mourning culture. See local hair wreaths made in honor of passing pets and family members and more!
