Kellogg Brides and Grooms
 
Are you a Kellogg bride and groom?  We want your wedding photos!  If your wedding pictures were taken at Osbornedale State Park and the Kellogg Estate gardens in Derby, we would like to feature them in a special museum exhibition. October 2019 will mark the 100th wedding anniversary of Frances Osborne and Waldo Kellogg. The Osborne Homestead Museum will celebrate their anniversary with a special exhibition displaying your wedding photos taken at the estate gardens and the park.
 
Frances Eliza Osborne and Waldo Stewart Kellogg married in October 21, 1919, and their love was as strong as “‘Romeo & Juliet’ or any of the "storybook lovers.” Frances was a business woman and community leader when she met Waldo, an architect who supervised the design of the Carnegie libraries in New York City and the Veteran’s Hospital in West Haven. After they married, they ran Osbornedale Farm, now Osbornedale State Park, and made it second to none in the New England dairy industry. They raised Holstein-Friesian cattle which won prestigious awards at the Big Eastern States Exposition.  
 
We would love to feature your wedding photos at the Osborne Homestead Museum during the month of October. This will be a temporary, month-long (Oct 1-31, 2019) photography exhibition. We will accept copies of your wedding photos, if you don’t want your original pictures on display. For more information and if you would like your wedding photos to be a part of this special exhibition, contact the Osborne Homestead Museum/Kellogg Environmental Center at 203-734-2513 or email susan.d.robinson@ct.gov
