  • | 1:00pm - 4:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, exhibit, museum
    - Set against a backdrop of Framingham images and artifacts, this exhibit features fashions that will both please the eye and illuminate the lives of some very special Framingham women. We’ve chosen pieces that reflect the social mores, economic status and the personalities behind the ever-present decision we all face daily - what to wear?

    Did you know that you can read clothing like any other historical document? It’s simply a matter of understanding the language. We’ll illustrate this language as you compare the ethereal wedding dress worn by Anna Foster Haven in 1824 with the austere gown worn by the devout Mrs. Temple on her wedding day in 1772. We’ve set the stage for you to experience the intimate setting of an 1880s salon where Framingham women entertained their closest friends adhering to the international trends that dictated appropriate dress and décor. Experience the Roaring Twenties by reading an Art Deco inspired dress worn by a very independent local actress and theatre director.

    Location: Edgell Memorial Building – 3 Oak Street, Framingham, MA
    Parking: Please park on 3 Oak St. (street parking available) or in the Village Hall lot (2 Oak St.)
    Hours: 1:00-4:00 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday, October 28, 2016 – April 29, 2017
    Admission: Free for FHC Members, $5 for Non-Members, $2 per FSU ID.

    - It was 1977 when Inky Fair, Tom Yates, and Doug Betschart started performing weekly at a spooky little mansion in Framingham called Timothy's Spirits Company- and five years later they were still "packing the house" to a dedicated following.

    With an unusual combination of bass pedals, drums, organs, and guitars they perform originals and an eclectic mix of covers ranging from David Bowie to Genesis, Pure Prairie League to Frank Zappa, Hendrix to Neil Young.
