MUMFORD, N.Y. (AP) - A museum outside Rochester has completed a $2.7 million renovation that will allow it to display a huge collection of 19th Century clothing and accessories.
The Genesee Country Village & Museum, in Mumford, acquired the Greene Costume Collection in 2010. But the museum will put it on display for the first time beginning Sunday, following renovation of its John Wehle Gallery.
Karen Augusta, a historic textiles expert for PBS' "Antiques Roadshow," has called the collection one of the finest of its kind.
It includes men's and women's pieces. Experts say men's clothing from the era is especially hard to find because it was typically cut down and used for quilts or rugs when no longer worn.
