"UNDER THE PETTICOATS" WITH PAT PERRY

 

NHS Museum, 58 Eliot Street

$5 Nonmembers, FREE! for Members

Have you ever wondered about the day-to-day lives of our colonial ancestors? Were the good old days really that good? Exactly how did one use a chamber pot? How many skirts did one woman wear at a time? How often did people bathe? For answers to these and other fascinating questions, come to our November program "Under the Petticoats" with historical re-enactor Patricia Perry!

Patricia (Pat) Perry is a professional historical interpreter who has developed almost two dozen different presentations over the years. "Under the Petticoats" is one of her most popular programs. She lives in Rhode Island and presents throughout the Northeast.
