A new exhibition, “Downton Abbey Style in Southampton: 1900 to 1920” will debut at the Southampton Historical Museum on Saturday, November 16. The exhibit will feature fashions and activities from Southampton’s Gilded Age, which occurred between 1880 and 1929.
The Museum has amassed a varied collection of women’s gowns, donated by Southampton’s Summer Colony residents who were members of high society in New York City as well. This exhibit showcases the styles and lifestyles of the Hamptons community between 1900 and 1920, a time period when the Southampton area was greatly altered.
The exhibition will run through Saturday, December 28. The fee is $4 for non-members and free for members and children 17 and under.
The Southampton Historical Museum is located at 17 Meeting house Lane in Southampton. For more information call 631-283-2494 or visit www.southamptonhistoricalmuseum.org.
