Under Where???

The Blue Hill Historical Society’s new exhibit Under Where? explores the dresses and their associated undergarments that middle class women in Blue Hill might have worn during the period 1840 to 1940. Undergarments are an important part of a women’s clothing history. As outer clothing is often an expression of how women wished to be seen in public. Undergarments, originally designed to be utilitarian in purpose, also changed with the prevalent styles. Come visit our special exhibit running now through the end of the our season in September.
