Fashion Friday featuring the Well-Dressed Women of Warrenville, Celebrating 50 Edition Part 2

It’s Fashion Friday again at the Historical Society! Enjoy these Well-Dressed Women of Warrenville from local artist Mildred Baldwin’s popular column from the Warrenville Digests.

These women were featured during 1967, the year that Warrenville incorporated as a city. Our feature includes the wife of newly elected Mayor Bill Stafford! This month we have also left the full page of the Digest by request, as we know many of you love reading through those!

If you’d like to learn more about Mildred Baldwin, the local artist whose column featured many women of Warrenville, see our earlier blog post here https://warrenvillehistorical.wordpress.com/2013/03/15/womens-history-month-mildred-baldwin/. You can also join us on the evening of Sunday, October 15th for our Annual Cemetery Walk which will feature some Well-Dressed Women of Warrenville!

Happy Easter, Memories from Easter 1967 #Celebrating50

As we head into the Easter holiday weekend, we continue looking back on 1967, the year the City incorporated 50 years ago. These Easter celebrations were captured in the Warrenville Digest during March of 1967.

The Museum will be closed this Sunday to allow our staff and volunteers to enjoy the holiday with their families, but please enjoy this bit of history as we celebrate the spring season, Easter and the City’s 50th! #Celebrating50

The line-up begins as Warrenville youngsters get ready for the Easter Egg hunt held on the VFW grounds. 80 dozen eggs were dyed by members and hidden.
