‘Victorian Collections and Coffee’ Series Begins at Sutliff

WARREN, Ohio – The Sutliff Museum will host the first in a series of lectures, “Victorian Collections and Coffee,” at 9 a.m. Sept. 17.

The lecture will give attendees insight into wedding customs during the late 19th century and how those customs still influence weddings today. “It will be a presentation on Victorian wedding customs featuring the influence of Queen Victoria on customs still used today,” says Melissa Karman, museum director.

Attendees are invited to bring one or two pieces of their own collection for the speaker to comment on during the interactive segment of the program.

The second program, “Inside Out: Revealing Clothing’s Secrets” will be presented on Oct. 13 and the third program, “Victorian Courtship and Languages of the Fan” will be presented on Nov. 15.

The lectures will take place in the Thomas Meeting Room on the second floor of the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library.

The Sutliff Museum is operated by the Warren Library Association and is a memorial to Levi and Phebe Sutliff who were operators on the Underground Railroad in Trumbull Count
