The special exhibition from PNJW Collections features formal clothing and interpretive panels showcasing the customs and fashions of the Civil War era.
"We are very excited to be able to bring this unique and historically significant collection to the Old Governor's Mansion," said Matt Davis, mansion director. "Visitors will be able to view firsthand the types of clothes worn during the time when the mansion was the residence for our state leader."
The collection can be viewed Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $7 for senior citizens and $2 for students.
