They were the nieces of Alexander England, one of the three men who donated land to form the town of Brevard. Their father, Thomas D. England, owned a dry goods business and built the house the museum now occupies.

To kick off Brevard's Sesquicentennial year, the Transylvania Heritage Museum will be holding a Fashion Show at Silvermont Mansion, located at 364 E. Main St., on Friday, March 16, from 5:30-7 p.m.

Local folks will model a variety of vintage and reproduction fashions that would have been seen on the streets of Brevard over the past 150 years. Mac Morrow, Brevard's Mayor Pro Tem, will serve as the master of ceremonies.

Tickets are available at A Blast from the Past, located at 15 W. Main St., and are $15.

For more information, call the museum at (828) 884-2347. You can also email Rebec...
