And since 1997, the reproduction period dress program at the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation has made about 360 separate garments for use at various state historic sites throughout New York, including Lorenzo. Staff from the Peebles Island Conservation Center and program participants will show reproduction examples and offer how appropriate period clothing has enhanced historic programming for various museums, exhibitions, special events, demonstrations and school programs. This free program will take place in the Community Room at the Cazenovia Public Library, 100 Albany Street on Monday, May 6 at 12:30 PM
