Jewels of the Desert: The history of the southwest patio dress…


We will have Jenny Kuller speak about the history of the southwest patio dress, also known as a Squaw Dress or Fiesta Dress.  Tickets are $20 for members of SHS and $25 for non-members.  Come down in your patio dress for a group photo in front of our 1940’s house.  If you don’t have your dress anymore, bring photos and stories of your dress.  We want to see and hear the stories you have of this iconic piece of Southwest history.  There will be refreshments served after.  Buy your tickets fast as this is sure to sell out soon!

Saturday, June 22, 2024 from 10 am to 11:30 am at the Sunnyslope Historical Society Museum
