Anderson Hall is being renovated! During this time, we encourage you to park at our lot behind the Museum on Susan Drive, next to the "Stagecoach playground". Just follow Lynn Rd. and turn in to Susan Drive; you will see the entrance next to the playground.

During our renovation, ALL AREAS other than Anderson Hall will be open, so please come out and visit us! Once the renovation has been completed, we will have a Grand Re-Opening of our wonderful downstairs hall.

Thank you all for your cooperation and understanding- we are improving in order to serve our Conejo Valley in every way!

"Just Married": An exhibit of Vintage Wedding Dresses

"Walk down the aisle" on a special tour of the Museum through the month of June, with an antique wedding costume in each room.

Every gown tells a love story.  Frances Kellogg and Egbert Star Newbury's granddaughter, Mary Jane Manierre wore the white wedding gown in 1942 when she married Peter C. Foote.  Their daughter, Suzanne, wore it when she married Christopher Hanks in 1962.  Their photographs are on the reed organ behind the dress.

Queen Victoria introduced the idea of wearing a white gown to the world in 1840, but it's only been since World War II that white has become the favorite color for Western bridal gowns. Throughout history, blue has been the far more common choice, as the color blue represents faithfulness, purity, chastity and the Virgin Mary--all of those aspects that a young lady most wanted to espouse. Today we remember all of this with the old adage “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.”

VICTORIAN ROMANCE SPEAKER: Andrea Tice, who helped to curate the Victorian Jewelry exhibit, is our expert on the romantic use of various media for remembrances in Victorian times. Women often used portions of their long hair to create amazing jewelry and art pieces- these were meant to convey their deep bond with the men who were part of their lives- men who went off to war, who travelled and were not home, and who were special members of the British society.
