November 5th 22 members of Belles and Beaus of Jacksonville enjoyed and evening of Victorian tradition at the Bybee’s Historic Inn. Belles and Beaus is an organization that promote history by dressing in vintage clothing and accessories while reviving the traditions of the 1800’s. They pay attention to every detail including the clutches the ladies carried containing period appropriate items. After a gourmet dinner catered by Chef William Prahl of De Javu in Jacksonville, the ladies retired to the Parlor and the men remained in the dining room just as it was done in the Victorian era. To finish off the evening everyone gathered in the parlor to play Victorian games. It was truly magical to have our 1857 circa home filled with guests representing that period.
