The Historical Society has dozens of wedding gowns in its collection, the oldest from 1898 and the most recent from 2003. These gowns, as well as 10 others spanning the decades from the 1890s through the 2000s, will be featured.
The most historic gown is the wedding suit that belonged to Caroline Jones Rixon, pioneer at Fairholme at the west end of Lake Crescent and the namesake of Mount Carrie in the Olympic Mountains.
Caroline and Theodore Rixon — government timber cruiser, surveyor and long-time Clallam County engineer — were married in 1899; the suit was donated to the Historical Society by their granddaughter.
