The mannequin wearing the voluminous pink gown gives you an idea, how a woman of high social status in the late 19th century might dress for dinner at Weatherton Palace. But first, she had to travel here from New York City, so she could take part in the occasion. If she didn’t bring her own ladies maid, the Cole’s would provide her one.
Guests often arrived by train, where they were met by a carriage, and during the one hour trip to the house, drove on the same beautiful winding approach road that you came in on.
Their luggage, on the other hand, was loaded onto a separate wagon, brought up the service road to the back of the house and sent upstairs in the elevator. Curator Caroline Arnold explains the reason for the shortcut.
INSERT (Interview material)
Women’s attire in the Victorian age was, to say the least, complicated. The figure in the black dress and white apron represents a house maid. According to one of our docents, she was the key to simplifying the entire process.
INSERT (Interview material)
Just caring for the clothing was practically a full time job. Fragile dresses like these would have been laid flat on shelves so that the delicate silk embellishments would not get crushed.
To learn more about the world of ladies maids and the lives of other domestic servants here at Weatherton, please press the pound key.
