[April 25, 2016]  ELKHART - The Elkhart Historical Society is delighted to announce an extraordinary “lunch and lecture” program for mothers on Saturday, May 7th, 2016-- at Horsefeathers Wild Hare Café in Elkhart- - “What the Well Dressed Mother Wore in the 1800’s,” to be presented by Nancy Torgerson of Forsyth, well-known historic interpreter, teacher, author, clothing consultant to museums, and 19th century custom tailor and dressmaker.

Her accurate and occasionally humorous portrayal of the layers required of the “best dressed” mothers of society will make you thankful to be in the 21th century. Men are welcome to bring their mothers, and may get some insight as to the extremes and equipment required to have an 18” waist.

A special menu of spring salad with chicken and strawberries vinaigrette, or chicken pot pie and salad, each with grilled artisan bread and scrumptious dessert of meringue served with chocolate mousse and berries is offered.
