UPCOMING 2022 EVENTS

June Brides of the Prairie

Seasonal Temporary Exhibit

The Museum of the Arkansas Grand Prairie announces a seasonal exhibit from our own collection, titled “June Brides of the Prairie”.  Featuring wedding dresses worn by Grand Prairie residents, the exhibit displays styles from the 1890’s through the 1960’s.  

 

The June Bride exhibit displays eight dresses, including a dress worn by a bride who later opened and operated a millinery store on Main St. just after the turn of the 20th century and a wedding suit worn in 1901.  A third dress was worn by a woman who taught school at St. John’s until 1985.  And, yet there are others for which our staff is still searching for specific information.

 

Dates:  June 16 - July 9, 2022
