Bundle Up! Dressing for Winter in Territorial Kansas

What did settlers wear to survive the harsh winters of 1850s Kansas? In this public talk, Eric Smallwood, 19th-century men’s fashion historian and tailor, used images, historical accounts, and original pieces from the collection of the Merchant Tailor Museum to address this topic.

In connection with this program, visitors are encouraged to drop off items for our Ballard Center winter clothing drive, happening through February 29.
