Come explore the Gilded Age through the Historic Tours of Flagler College.
While touring the former Hotel Ponce de Leon, built by Henry Flagler in 1888, you will explore the dinning hall ringed with Tiffany stained glass windows, our recently renovated courtyard, and the Grand Parlor room which currently features our Gilded Age Fashion Collection.
This exhibit features 7 detailed Gilded Age outfits from the late 1900 century and can only be seen as part of the historic tours. The exhibit will run through May 2016.
The clothes that are exhibited are the kind that the wealthy visitors of the Hotel Ponce de Leon would have worn — layers upon layers of garments, such as pantaloons, corsets and bustles. Unlike today, people, especially of the upper class, would have changed several times daily. Both women and men’s clothing will be exhibited.
