Well I just learned a sad lesson. Rule #1 – Once a year look up on the internet, newspaper,phone book, or ask your friends what they know about interesting places to visit where you live. Since I was 21 yrs old (old enough to know how to do things) I lived in the Cleveland, Ohio or near suburb area. I just looked up to see if there really was a Hower House and low and behold there is, one that has afternoon teas, a gift shop and you can tour the house right smack in the middle of the University of Akron, in Akron, Ohio. Marilyn next time I am in Ohio plan on going to tea in Akron. Anyone interested look up Hower House on the internet.
Now to go with that, we have some lovely costumes from the period 1878 – 1888 done by Betty Rolenz. There are 10 pages including a hand made cover. So tonight we will post 4 pages.
