Margaret Gordon wore this two-piece gold silk dress during her 1865 wedding to William Abel Findley. Please excuse the bare midriff in the photo, Margaret would have worn the bodice snug over the skirt. Her full skirt and coatsleeves that curve at the elbow were very popular at the time.

  1. Where might I view Margaret Gordon Findley’s wedding dress? She was my great-grandmother, and I’m thrilled that you have her beautiful wedding gown on display.
