Have you ever wondered what dating was like 100 years ago? This special tour of Clayton, running February 4–April 5, will explore courting customs of the American Victorian era including the social etiquette of romance, announcing an engagement (or breaking one off), and wedding traditions. This thematic tour will have a particular focus on the courtship, wedding, and early married life of Henry Clay Frick and Adelaide Howard Childs.
