"The Tredwell Costume Collection comprises more than 400 articles of clothing. The core of the collection consists of 39 dresses documented to have been owned and worn by the women of the family. This month marks the beginning of a changing exhibition featuring Tredwell dresses from the decades of the 19th century. These dresses show the changing silhouette of fashion over 100 years, and tell us about the women who wore them and the society in which they lived.
"The first in the series is a white cotton dress, ca. 1820, belonging to Eliza Tredwell. It was her wedding dress when she married Seabury Tredwell on June 13, 1820. It is the earliest dress in the Museum’s collection."
