Add this Event to Calendar 12/16/2020 07:00 PM 12/16/2020 08:00 PM Victorian Holiday Traditions (Virtual Program)

Take a step back in time as we explore how the holidays were celebrated in Victorian Pittsburgh!  Join us to learn about the Victorian origins of many holiday traditions as The Frick Pittsburgh docent Sue Morris shares historic holiday photos from Clayton, the home of the Henry Clay Frick family from 1883 to 1905. We'll also take a look at modern-day images showing how curators decorate the home for the season, and explore how servants and working class Pittsburghers marked the holiday in the late 19th and early 20th century.
