Historic Weddings in Delaware County

With the celebration of Valentine’s Day in the middle of the month, February is a great time to look back at love and marriage in Delaware County. The wedding books, certificates, invitations, dresses and photographs collected by local historical associations and societies give us a glimpse of life in days gone by.

Step back in time with the Oulehoudt Valley Historical Society’s collection of wedding dresses displayed at the Franklin Railroad and Community Building. The dresses date from the late 1800s through 1940. Photographs of their original wearers accompany some of the dresses. The collection is open, free to the public, on the last Sunday of each month.
