See how the Thompson Family 
enjoyed the Holidays in the late 1800's!

The preparation and eating of the feast, decorations and gift giving, entertainments and parlour games - all were essential to the celebration of the festival and were to be shared by the whole family.

CHECK OUT THE CRAZY QUILT

Our newest donation...
a 200+ year Crazy Quilt handed down from generation to generation with various amazing embroidered patches
from the Adel Fredenburg family.

Crazy Quilt - block-style patchwork quilt became a "distinct expression" of nineteenth-century America.

VICTORIAN WOMEN AT LILIAN PLACE

Learn the history of Victorian women of Daytona Beach.

Women in the Victorian society had one main role in life, which was to marry and take part in their husbands' interests and business. Before marriage, they would learn housewife skills such as weaving, cooking, washing, and cleaning, unless they were of a wealthy family.
