Frontier Ladies Living History Workshop

Price:  Free

Date:  August 2, 2023 to August 5, 2023

Please join your hostesses Tereasa Cotter and Sharon Baird for a lovely Ladies’ Symposium celebrating summer. Including flower arranging, making a petal handbag, a smoking cap for your gentlemen, handkerchief dolls for your girls, and watercolor paintings.

You will indulge yourselves with playing croquet on the parade ground and touring the Western Art Exhibit at Fort Concho. You will have tea daily to further enjoy the

wonderful time spent at Colonel Grierson’s residence. There will be pie-making and strawberry jam-cooking sessions. You will go to the Farmers Market to find summer fruits and vegetables to serve at dinner.

Thursday evening there will be an Ice Cream Social and Folk Dance.

On Saturday evening you will attend a formal seven-course meal that is based on a 19th-century menu that was served at Fort Sill. At this dinner you will be required to wear your most fancy dresses and your partner will also need to dress in all of his finery as well!
