Since I work in the underwear industry I thought this would be a great place to see the old fashion underwear styles and I am very interested in ghosts. They say sometimes people have experience that they are not alone in the house beside the other visitors.
Mid-19th Century Underwear: Defy propriety and come take a peek at our hand-embroidered chemise, split-leg drawers, steel-boned corset, voluminous petticoat, silk stockings, and cage crinoline. You’ll be amazed – and amused – when you learn how much a mid-19th century lady had to put on before she got dressed. Included with regular admission. ( Sourced MHM)
