The Chisholm Trail Museum is proud to announce a new temporary exhibit will be on display starting in mid-September. The exhibit, "No Lady of Leisure" will display original rare Victorian Era working dresses from the 1840s through the early 1900s. The exhibit will detail not only original rare Victorian Era working dresses, but will also detail through photographs and narrative, "what a difficult situation most respectable but poor in the purse women found themselves in," who out of necessity found a way to clothe themselves respectably, "yet still be able to perform household duties which were their sole domain." The exhibit will also delve into the invention and availability of the sewing machine, the development of the fixed sewing pattern, and the development of the network of roads and railroads. The dresses on display will represent various geographical and socio-economical styles from those who lived on the frontier during and after the Land Runs to those who lived in cities throughout the Victorian Era.
