ALNC UPDATES

Welcome! Our facility is open on weekdays from 9am to 4pm and on weekends from 10am to 2pm.

Wearing a face mask indoors is optional. Because we are a childcare facility and follow public health protocols, we have limited access to some public offerings and areas of our facility. We appreciate your patience as we work to find a healthy balance of access and safety for our community.

As always, our grounds and trails featuring self-guided tours are free and open daily from dawn until dusk.

Victorian Dress

 

– For those who are good with a needle and thread, try a home-sewn Victorian dress! It might seem like a lot of work, but you won’t just end up with a costume- but with an excellent piece of formal wear.

Filigree Necklace – Steampunk accessories are what really help to distinguish it as alternate history from anachronism. Finally make good use of old pocket watches and doorless keys!
