Victorian life focus of Louisiana museum annual spring program

Posted on Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at 2:40 pm

The Louisiana Area Historical Museum will present its annual spring luncheon Saturday, May 10, featuring Carolyn Miller of Sedalia.

Miller, who is a former teacher and is the wife of a minister, will be sharing information about life in Victorian times.  She will bring clothing and other items from that time period to put on display for all to see.  She delights in sharing her collections and her knowledge of vintage fashions and customs with others and states that “the ultimate joy of collecting comes through sharing.”


The luncheon, to be held at noon at the Seton Center, will be prepared by the “Ladies of the Museum” and will feature chicken salad, pasta salad, fresh fruit, chocolate eclair delight, tea and coffee.

Museum president, Martha Sue Smith, states, “I would encourage people to attend this wonderful program which takes us back to a time when life was certainly fascinating and very influential in the American culture.”

All proceeds benefit the museum, which is in its 22nd year and looks to the future with more acquisitions and services.  An active board has been providing summer programming for kids of all ages and also cataloging items for future reference.

Tickets for the luncheon and presentation are $15 and are available at the Louisiana Area Historical Museum at 304 Georgia Street  in Louisiana, the Louisiana Public Library at 121 North Third Street, or from the following  museum board members: Linda Beer, Randall Cone, Sally Cropp, Ned Glenn, Doris Greene, John Murray, Trent Meyers, Ann Narramore, Judy Schmidt, Jerry Smith, Martha Sue Smith, Juanita Thomas, or Dorothy Webb.


Seating is limited.  Tickets will only be sold at the door if seating is still available.    More information can be obtained by calling 754-4443, 754-4406, or 754-5697.
