Supporters also included Doctors' House Director Sonia Montejano, Glendale Historical Society members Victoria and Brett Godwin, and graphic artist Scott Lasken.
Glendale residents included Doctors' House Vintage Clothes Curator Ruth Ellen Billion, Marcia Hanford and Jeanette and Marc Stirdivant.
Attendees were also treated to an opportunity to purchase a piece of history. Small hunks of the original, ceiling plaster from the Brand family mansion were available for $20 each. The pieces were framed in plastic and specified which room in the mansion the bit of ceiling came from. Visitors could have their choice of a little bit of the dining room, the drawing room, the library or the reception hall.
Free public events this week include a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, a gallery reception on Saturday and open house on Sunday. The afternoon, family-oriented open house will include live jazz, food trucks and climbing walls for the little ones.
