In Honor of Valentine’s Day, we are

showcasing a circa 1893 Wedding Dress 

of Mary Cornelia Weaver Hall

from the museum’s collection.



Mary Cornelia Weaver Hall (born August 18, 1859- died May 6, 1930)

married William Madison Hall of Oakville Farm in 1893.  The dress

is handmade; in addition, the lace and satin details were applied

one stitch at a time.  Imagine the dedication it took to make a dress like this:

Oakville Farm

The most notable feature of Oakville Farm is the use of dormer windows rising flush with the façade of the house, the only such instance in Westmoreland County.
