The exhibit is based on the popular TV series Downton Abbey. It features dresses and costumes from the New Castle Historical Society’s extensive costume collection.
The “Downton Chappy – Costumes of the Downton Abbey Era” exhibit will also have a selection of beaded bas, long kid gloves and hats. One is a silver cap perfect to slip over a head of bobbed hair and dance the Charleston. Stop in for a special treat, and decide who had more style and more fun: the blue bloods of Downton Abbey, or the red blooded ladies of Chappaqua.
